Daintree River and Mossman Gorge Discovery
This is a great tour for those of you who only want to spend a half day out, are short on time, or want to get out and enjoy the rainforest in the morning with plenty of time left for the rest of the day! You visit two areas on this trip, Daintree River and Mossman Gorge, with your personal tour guide.
- You will get picked up from your accommodation in Port Douglas by your personal guide for the afternoon. If you are driving up from Cairns we will meet you at the Wildlife Habitat Carpark.
- We drive north along the Captain Cook Highway, passing cane fields on the way to the Daintree River, and share a little history and many interesting facts along the way.
- You will board a cruise along the Daintree River, looking out for all manner of creatures, including the estuarine crocodile, snakes, birds, frogs, and more.
- Morning tea with a lamington before heading back down south to the beautiful Mossman Gorge.
- We arrive at Mossman Gorge, which is the southern part of the Daintree Rainforest. Your guide will take you on a walk and share their knowledge of the local flora and fauna and answer any questions you may have. This is an easy 500m return walk mostly along boardwalks.
- You can enjoy a swim in the crystal-clear rainforest stream, which can be quite refreshing, whilst being surrounded by the beautiful and healing Mossman Gorge rainforest. What a great way to spend a morning!
