Mossman Gorge Rainforest Circuit track, Daintree National Park
45 Minutes / 2.4 Kilometres


Crystal-clear water cascades over large granite boulders in the Mossman River gorge. Lush rainforests cloak steep mountainsides from the riverbanks up to the rugged eastern slopes of the Main Coast Range.

This Rainforest circuit track in Daintree National Park begins on the far side of Rex Creek bridge. On the left, 80 metres from the bridge, a small lookout provides views of Manjal Dimbi (Mount Demi). A little way past the lookout the track divides to form a circuit that meanders through the rainforest.

Seasonal track closures may occur from time-to-time due to localised flooding or track maintenance. Stay on the walking track and boardwalk at all times. It is dangerous to enter Mossman River, due to a combination of strong currents, flash flooding, cold, deep water and slippery rocks. Deaths and injuries have occurred here.
