Mossman Gorge


The next morning we dutifully headed off to Mossman Gorge.  It'll just be more rainforest I thought but as the Things to Do list had it as a Must See I figured we have better go anyway.



The star of this show is not the rainforest, it's the gorge.  Big boulders and crystal clear rapidly moving water.  I was disappointed that in the photographs it looks like just a rocky creek -- I am hoping the last shot gives you a sense of scale, they are very big rocks in that creek,

  1. Definitely my kind of place. Such beautiful tropical spots!

    1. It sure is tropical. I loved it in winter but I am sure I would find it quite unbearable in the summer time. The winter is also the dry season so the humidity is low.

  2. Love that second shot, that boulder in the foreground and the colour.

    1. Peter, this gorge as one of the highlights of the whole trip. I was so disappointed that that photos just don't capture how beautiful it was. I agree the second shot does it best.

  3. It looks like a lovely place even though it's a major tourist attraction.

    1. Yes it is a major tourist attraction managed by the indigenous community. It is a beautiful facility and very well run.
