We last walked up the Mossman Gorge 18 years ago and it was hard yakka. It was obvious then that this beautiful area had to be looked after and protected while still offering good access to those who appreciate the world for what it is.
We were delighted with what has happened with the new visitor centre, transformation of the walks, and the general care of this important ecological area. Only the most vulgar tourists from city areas would think otherwise. Certainly not a place for screaming kids who just want to play and eat ice cream.
For most people heading from Port Douglas up to the Daintree or beyond - we suggest you go early, take your time and enjoy this incredible piece of nature.
Tip: Pay for the return bus trip - the walk is much too far on a hot day unless you are super fit,
