Gateway to the spectacular Mossman Gorge

A short scenic drive 15 minutes north of Port Douglas will take you to Mossman, a picturesque township set amongst the cane fields and gateway to the Mossman Gorge, a stunning natural beauty in the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park.

Enjoy the friendly Mossman hospitality exploring country stores and historic pubs in the tree-lined main street. Take a guided rainforest walk with the native Kuku Yulanji indigenous people. Stop by the tropical fruit winery and sample some of the award winning mango, pineapple and passionfruit wine. During the sugar cane crushing season (June-October), the region’s biggest sugar mill offer guided tours of the entire process of making sugar inside the mill.

 

Explore Mossman

 

Mossman Gorge is located 5 minutes west of Mossman and is a popular section of the Daintree National Park, set within a steep-sided valley on the Mossman River. Here you can take guided indigenous rainforest tours, swim in the refreshing water of the Mossman River or explore the walking tracks and suspension bridge.
The Whyanbeel Valley offers a stunning scenic drive through sugar cane farms, cocoa farms, exotic fruit plantations and nurseries against the backdrop of stunning rainforest mountains and waterfalls. Stay in hidden executive homes and luxury lodges set on the banks of the Mossman River. Stroll through rainforest, art galleries and glass blowing studios. Tour the unique cocoa and exotic fruit plantations. Have a relaxing gourmet meal in a riverside cafe or restaurant while being cooled by the refreshing breeze.

You can also experience a taste of the real Australian outback on a working cattle station, framed by the Daintree Rainforest. Stepping into the world of the stockman, you can listen to old bush yarns while you watch an outback muster show and dine on a traditional Aussie BBQ.

The Mossman Markets are held each Saturday from 7am to 12pm under the towering raintrees in the park next to St. David’s Anglican Church. Here you will find delicious fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, homemade cakes and children’s clothing and much more.
