Mossman Gorge Adventure Day

Cairns & Great Barrier Reef, Queensland

You’ll start this unique rainforest adventure at a secret location on the Mossman River in tropical north Queensland for a one-of-a-kind River Drift Snorkelling tour, searching for turtles, water dragons, electric blue butterflies and the elusive platypus. Float peacefully down the river and swim in the crystal-clear waters.

After a well-earned lunch, enjoy a traditional Kuku Yalanji smoking ceremony at the Mossman Gorge; where you’ll be cleansed of bad spirits and have traditional rainforest body paint applied.

Then explore the Daintree National Park at an easy pace, with a guided walk. There is 3km of boardwalks and paths and you’ll cross a suspension bridge that boasts spectacular views of Mossman River and provides the opportunity to see the unique flora and fauna of the Daintree Rainforest. Learn about this ancient landscape and keep on the lookout for the Boyd’s Forest Dragon – these wonderful creatures are not found anywhere else on earth.

This tour will leave you with a deeper understanding of this breathtaking rainforest.

To enjoy this active rainforest experience, all guests require a reasonable level of fitness, and a high level of mobility.
