1. Mossman Gorge
Mossman gorge is home to the Kuku Yalangi tribe, the traditional aboriginal owners of the area. Mossman gorge is a breath-taking area of natural beauty in the Daintree National Park. Whilst here you will find lush rainforest, waterfalls and mountains. A variety of plants, wildlife and tropical birds can be found here. An Australian favourite the Kookaburra can also be heard amongst the rainforest song.
For our trip to the Northern Queensland rainforest we decided to use a tour company called Tony’s Tropical tours. We followed our tour guide Petra through Mossman gorge stopping at beauty stops along the way before arriving at the Daintree river for our next stop. Petra our guide was excellent and full of knowledge which she kindly shared.
2. Daintree River
The Daintree river is home to crocodiles. Hoping to see them along our boat trip along the river we got out our cameras. We were met at the start of the boat trip by Bruce. What a funny guy. He took us along the river, stopping if we spotted movement in the water. We were lucky enough to spot 3 crocodiles.
Not only were there crocodiles, but there were birds, butterflies and gorgeous views of the Daintree rainforest.
3. Cape Tribulation
Cape tribulation is an ecotourism beach area, combining stunning beach with the rainforest.
Did you know Cape Tribulation was given its name by British James Cook because this area was where all his troubles began after getting stuck in the Great Barrier Reef.
