Length: 1.9 mi • Est. 57 m
Easy loop trail through Mossman Gorge, which is part of Daintree National Park. A very popular tourist area and walk - one can walk from the visitor centre past the aboriginal village to save $ on a small bus fee but it is encouraged to take the bus. The walk itself is lovely including a section of raised platform with info signs. The small out and back option to the NW of the circuit is definitely worth it - a beautiful little pool perfect for a dip awaitsShow more

Daintree National Park
moderateGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray Star
Length: 66.8 mi
Driving from Cape Tribulation via the Bloomfield Track, through Wujal Wujal and finishing at Cooktown is a popular route with beautiful coastal scenery, World Heritage Listed rainforest, waterfalls, scenic ranges and plenty of adventure. Some great stops along the way include Bana Yirriji Arts Centre nestled in the wet tropics rainforest, the secluded Cowie Beach, along Donovans Ridge, Bloomfield River lookout, and Wujal Wujal Falls. The Bloomfield Track is a 4WD soil track with creek crossings, dust, steep climbs and muddy sections that are slippery and easy to get stuck in a bog especially if the conditions are wet. If you are in a 2WD vehicle, you'll find that the crossing at Emmagen Creek is as far as you'll be able to go, and the track is also generally unsuitable for trailers and caravans. Often the conditions of the track are variable and can either be an easy cruise or impassable, so be sure to check conditions prior to setting out and carry all the equipment you may require. In wet weather the river currents should be taken into careful consideration, and if in doubt always wait it out for the water level to go down. Be comfortable gear-changing for steep gradients around Donovan's Range (20%) and Cowie Range (33%). Show more
