Mossman Tourism & Travel
The mist topped mountains beyond Port Douglas cast a magic spell that lures visitors along the short scenic drive north to Mossman, a picturesque little township nestled at the foot of the mountains among the bright green fields of sugar cane.
At nearby Mossman Gorge, see the Mossman River tumble its way over and around huge granite boulders that line the gorge creating cool clear freshwater swimming holes.
Awe-inspiring tree-clad mountains rise sharply up from the riverbanks. Walk as far as the suspension bridge across the river or explore the 2.7 kilometre, 1.7 mile rainforest loop trail.
Mossman Gorge is home to the Kuku-yalanji people, the areas traditional Aboriginal landowners who strive to protect their natural heritage as they share its unique qualities with visitors.
Guided bushwalks are available that give a rare insight into the special relationship Kuku-yalanji people have with the rainforest, while traditional dance performances and artefact displays portray their rich cultural heritage.
