Mossman Gorge

Stock Images By Brigitte Seidl

Nestled in the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge contains the oldest, continuously surviving rainforest on earth. Just one hectare of the 120,000 hectare forest can contain over 30,000 species of plants and animals. Considered by many to be the evolutionary cradle for much of Australia’s plant and wildlife species, the forest has managed to survive for over 135 million years and, with the right protection, is expected to thrive for generations to come.

On the left, 80m 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.

Photo 6. Mossman Gorge, water hole A picnic lunch at one of the many water holes will allow you the time to just sit and appreciate the wonders of your surroundings.

Photo 7. Mossman Gorge, Long Necked Turtle Long necked turtles are common in eastern, northern and western Australia. They inhabit almost any type of relatively slow moving water, from farm dams to major rivers and lakes. In many cultures turtles are a good luck charm.

Photo 9. Mossman Gorge, wet climate Mossman Gorge has one of the wettest climates in Australia, most rain falls during the months of December to April. While it may be wet, do not expect the temperatures to be cool as humidity during this time often exceeds 80 per cent with temperatures averaging 27 to 33 degrees Celsius.

Photo 11. Mossman Gorge, water flowing Visiting in the wet season can be a highlight for visitors. This is a time of year that will switch senses to overload with the smells, sounds and sights of the Gorge heightened as plants blossom and the water flows that little bit faster providing the perfect conditions for swimming.

Photo 12. Mossman Gorge, Daintree Rainforest Around 3,000 plant species from over 210 families are found within the Daintree Rainforest and extended wet tropics region. Twelve out of the world 19 families of primitive flowering plants grow within the region and within these at least 50 species are found only within the tropics and rarely seen anywhere else.

Photo 13. Mossman Gorge, Strangler Fig Tree The overcrowding of plants on the rainforest floor means they must fight for survival and grow skywards in search of the sun. This struggle for survival results in some very interesting plants to view in the rainforest such as the strangler fig.

Photo 14. Mossman Gorge, Lady tourist on Rainforest Circuit Track The temperature cools from May to November and the conditions become a little drier. This is the best time for long walks with the humidity dropping dramatically and conditions become more suitable for exploring, with average temperatures of around 25 degrees celsius.

Photo 15. Mossman Gorge, Strangler Fig Tree The strangler fig often begins its life as a seed deposited by a bird at the top of a tree or in a trees crevice. It then develops roots and grows down the host tree, essentially strangling it all the way down to its base. Once the host plants dies, the strangler fig stands alone.
