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. 



 Boyds Forest Dragon. By ensuring that their body temperature is always precisely the same as the temperature of the vegetation upon which they sleep, they remain thermally inconspicuous to the Amethystine Python with its formidable heat-sensing capabilities. Smart dragon! @peter_nijenhuis  Quick breath. Do you know how long a turtle can hold it's breath for? @wildman_photo  Stone hopping at Pebbly Beach as the sun rises on a new day in tropical paradise.

 Stunning creation by @2fishrestaurant! This scrumptious dessert will be served at their Christmas lunch.  The little hidden gem 'Herbie's'. The only place for a cocktail or icy cold beer right on the beach, sand between your toes and hammock to rest your bones. Photo @thalabeach  Floating through ancient rainforest.
