Itinerary

Crystal Waters and Indigenous Culture at Mossman Gorge

Explore a wondrous combination of historical awe and breathtaking beauty, as you enter the Mossman Gorge.

On the cusp of the ancient Daintree, this marvel of rainforest will prove a tour highlight. You’ll be welcomed by the custodians of the land; the Aboriginal Kuku Yalanji people, who will treat you to a display of culture and custom.

Your day includes a Welcome to Country Ceremony to cleanse you of spirits, and traditional body painting too!

The gorge has been sculpted by the rains and rapids of the Mossman River, and will unfold before you in a crystal cascade of inviting brooks and waterholes.

Be sure to have your swimming costume on, as you won’t want to miss the chance to swim in this clear, fresh waters of the gorge.
