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, 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 fruit orchards, art galleries and glass blowing studios. 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.
