Back Country Bliss

Cairns & Great Barrier Reef, Queensland

Why drive through the Daintree when you can float, snorkel and swim! Back Country Bliss is based in Port Douglas and they offer unique outdoor adventures including day and half day tours that will have you drifting, snorkelling and walking through the beautiful Mossman Gorge.

Float down a flowing rainforest river on your sturdy river sled. It’s the perfect way to stay cool in the hot tropics and a peaceful way to see the lush surrounds. You’ll also get a great introduction to snorkelling in the river before heading out to the reef. Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for some of the friendly inhabitants – turtles, fish, colourful birds, water dragons, electric blue butterflies.

We also love the connection to culture on the Mossman Gorge Adventure day – a traditional welcome to Country and smoke ceremony with a Kuku Yalanji guide; the traditional custodians of Mossman Gorge.

If you love nature and the water, this is the way to see Tropical North Queensland.
