Mossman is the seat of local government and the centre of the sugar industry. It is a pleasant little town set amid the splendour of green canefields and rainforest clad mountains. Distance From Brisbane (State Capital): 1882 kilometres north.
Five minutes west of Mossman you will discover Mossman Gorge, a very accessible and scenic section of the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park. Here the Mossman River tumbles its way over huge granite boulders that line the gorge, creating cool clear freshwater swimming holes. Awe inspiring tree-clad mountains rise sharply up from the river banks. Walk as far as the suspension bridge across the river or explore the 2.7 kilometre rainforest loop trail.
The Gorge is home to the Kuku Yalanji people, the area's traditional Aboriginal landowners who strive to protect their natural heritage as they share its unique qualities with visitors.
