The guided Dreamtime walk is a "must do" when you are in this part of the world. The knowledge that is passed on by the guides is invaluable, Roy was our guide and he has lived here for his entire life and has such wonderful...More
We were lucky to have Roy as our tour-walk guide as he developped this attraction. The duration was 1,5 hrs. Starting with the smoke ceremony we followed a trail trough the rainforest, while he explained many items during the walk, including poisonous plants, trees and...More
Port Douglas is a truly lovely part of the world, but there is occasionally a weird racist vibe and condescension towards local Aboriginal people. The Mossman Gorge Kuku Yalanji Centre dispels this completely. The centre is run and operated incredibly well by local Aboriginal staff...More
The surroundings are heavenly, but charging $75 for 30 minutes of guided walk is an absolute rip off. It’s a dreamtime for people who run it! I’d say best is to pay an entry fee without the tour and get much more information by searching...More
My 14 year old daughter and I shared this wonderful experience. Skip was our guide. He's been involved with these walks since their inception (around 12 years ago). He's very passionate about the Daintree and eager to share his knowledge.

We booked a Dreamtime guided tour of the Mossman Gorge and it was well worth it. We had Santos as a guide who was knowledgeable and kind. The kids loved it and we were so glad we did the tour first as when we walked...More
A very very interesting walk through the beautiful Daintree rainforest; impressive.
Skip was a great and lovely guide.
I higly recommend it!
After the dreamtime walk you will experience the rainforest in a different and even more beautiful way; a lot of respect and admiration...More
I was by myself and made feel welcome. The tour s easy and informative and our guide had a sense of humor which is always good. Sadly there was another tour happening just near the buildings and we crossed paths and there were a couple...More

Probably not. the trip is in the bush on a bush track so you have roots and everything. it also goes up and down quite a bit. we did have someone who was Downs Syndrome on the tour and they just managed with someone holding them and guiding them. if the person needed a walker frame then this tour would not suit.

I would allow a mimimum of one hour for the Kuku Yalangi visit to Mossman Gorge. If you have children with you, it is up to you how much time you spend. There is a lovely swimming hole with very cool water coming down from the mountains. DO. NOT. USE. THIS. IF IT IS IN FLOOD. With swimming and a long walk you could easily spend three hours. Good Mayi (food) at the cafe in the centre.
The walks are well laid out and you can choose the length of your exploration,
Turn left travelling from Cairns,when you are in Mossman township after the one and only set of lights, drive up this road for ABOUT a kilometre, turn right into the Kuku Yalangi Centre. You leave your car there and buy your bus ticket (about $10 for the bus to be driven up the gorge).

Cape Trib/Port Douglas trip (2 Replies)
We stayed at the Ferntree Rainforest Resort at Cape Tribulation which we very much enjoyed. However be aware that the rooms get very chilly at night and they have some nasty ants which bite. From a suggestion on this site we ate at the Dragonfly across the road which was very good but it is up for sale so hope it carries on. Also for a cheap meal try the bistro at the Cape Tribulation beach house which is just up the dirt track road. If tempted to go on a crocodile spotting cruise go in the...More
