Mossman Gorge, Aboriginal Dreamtime Walk and Daintree River Crocodile Cruise Day Trip
US$156.52
Overview
Discover the beauty and history of Queensland’s coastal rainforest on this full-day dreamtime adventure. Trek through the World Heritage-listed rainforest around Mossman Gorge with an aboriginal guide while learning about indigenous spiritual customs and native medicinal plants. Savor a locally sourced lunch among the treetops at the Daintree Teahouse, and glide down the Daintree River on a croc-spotting cruise. You also explore the historic sugar town of Mossman and the vibrant coastal culture of Port Douglas.
What to Expect
Tropical North Queensland may be most famous for its reef, but some of the area’s greatest treasures are found inland among the ancient coastal rainforest. Your full-day adventure begins with pickup at your Palm Cove, Cairns or Port Douglas hotel and a drive along spectacular coastal roads to Mossman Gorge. 

Here, meet your local indigenous guide and set off through the enchanting rainforest on a guided, 1.5-hour nature walk. Learn about the ecosystem through the lens of aboriginal culture as your guide relates dreamtime stories and points out plants used for traditional medicine and bush tucker. Refresh during a tea and damper break while chatting with your guide about local tribal customs. (Please note that the walk is suitable for all fitness levels but is not handicap accessible.)

Next, take a short tour through the historic sugar town of Mossman on the way to lunch at Daintree Teahouse, a luxurious resort tucked away on the banks of the Mossman Gorge River. Dine on fresh fish and local produce, served in the riverside Treehouse Restaurant. Vegetarian options are also available.

In the afternoon, delve deeper into the ancient rainforest with a 1-hour cruise down the Daintree River. Learn about the forest’s exceptional biodiversity and keep an eye out for tree snakes, tropical birds and saltwater crocodiles lurking just below the surface!

Finally, take a spin through Port Douglas and learn how this historic fishing village has become a popular holiday destination. Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel in the early evening.

No crocs, no problem

The river cruise was a bit of a disappointment as we did not see any crocodiles. A tree snake was seen by some, but not by us. Our guide noted that it was high tide so that may have had something to do with it....More

Could have been much better...

My wife and I spent 8 hours on a hike in Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Reserve and a short river cruise. The pace was maddeningly slow. The hike lasted 1 hour, as did the cruise. There was no justifiable reason that they stretch these...More
