Full description
Pay a visit to Mossman Gorge, located only 20 minutes from Port Douglas and a must-do for any visitor to North Queensland. Situated in the southern part of Daintree National Park, Mossman Gorge provides visitors the chance to gain insight into the lives, culture, and beliefs of Australia’s Indigenous population and their connection to the natural environment.

Join a guided Dreamtime Walk tour to get a deeper insight into the ancient flora and fauna of the rainforest. Be welcomed with a traditional ‘smoking’ ceremony that cleanses and wards off bad spirits. The walk then meanders through stunning rainforest and takes in traditional huts or humpies. Walk along private, gentle tracks, visiting special places and culturally significant sites, past traditional bark shelters and over meandering cool rainforest streams.

Watch as your experienced interpretive Indigenous guide demonstrates traditional plant use and identifies bush food sources. Listen as they provide an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. Observe demonstrations of how to make bush soaps and ochre painting. At the end of the tour, enjoy a traditional bush tea and damper.
