Mossman Gorge Rainforest Walk
Sale Price: $89.00
Here's your chance to visit a relatively untouched portion of Australia and the traditional land of the indigenous Kuku Yalanji people. Located inside the World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park, Mossman Gorge is home to more than 3,000 species of plants, 315 species of mammals and more than 430 species of birds. Wind your way deep into the spectacular rainforest around a 1-hour circuit track while your guide points out several flora and fauna.
Watch for rare animals such as ringtail possums and the cassowary as you are immersed in a symphony of sounds from multiple birds and amphibians. Keep an eye out for the area's Boyd Forest Dragon, a chameleon that changes color to blend into the surrounding area. Listen for the piercing scream of the cat-sized spotted-tail quolls that roam the lush rainforest. While on your walk, stop and deeply inhale the pure forest air and enjoy a refreshing dip in one of the many pools of water.
Be sure to bring your camera to capture the animals and get photos of the famous Strangler Fig trees with their flying buttresses that help form the dense canopy overhead. Enjoy delicious chocolate chip cookies during your outing to keep you energized. This small, family-friendly tour is a great way to experience the wild side of ancient Australia. Reserve your spot today.

The lush rainforest was a pleasure to walk through. The hike was easy and our guide, Jason, was very knowledgeable and a good communicator. We did not see any wildlife, though we did see some plaques that talked of them. There was a stop at a little part of the river for a swim or a soaking of the feet. I took photos of some interesting plantlike. I can recommend this tour.
