  • Description
    • Spend the day exploring the Mossman Gorge 
    • Go snorkelling down a rainforest river  
    • Wander through the rainforest on a guided Daintree National Park walk 

    Get out for a full day adventure experiencing the best of Mossman Gorge with snorkelling, a rainforest walk, a dip in a pristine natural watering hole and more. You can be picked up from Port Douglas, Palm Cove (Cairns) or Mossman, and be taken for an exciting day tour into the lush rainforest around Mossman Gorge. 

    Take the plunge and discover what’s beneath the crystal-clear waters during a river drift snorkelling adventure. Look out for fish, turtles and other marine life as you swim down the stream. Then you’ll be treated to a delicious lunch before experiencing a traditional Kuku Yalanji smoking ceremony at the Mossman Gorge. 

    In the afternoon you’ll set out for 1.5-2 hour guided walk along 3km of boardwalks and paths through the Daintree National Park. Immerse yourself in the rainforest as you walk beneath the shaded canopy of towering trees and learn about the bustling ecosystem all around you. Make sure to keep an eye out for the Boyd’s Forest Dragon along the way! 

    Stop by an idyllic natural watering hole for an afternoon snack and jump in for a refreshing dip if you’re up for it. It’s a long day of exploration and adventure and it’s the best way to experience everything Mossman Gorge has to offer. 

    This experience is part of our Low-Footprint Adventures range because it’s ECO certified by Ecotourism Australia.
