Visited Mossman gorge over 20 years and loved it then, so wanted to go back when cruising to Port Douglas. Still amazing, but this time we had the opportunity of doing the Dreamtime walk with Mooks. This is definitely something everyone should do!

We had a very good guide, obviously having great pride in his traditions, who took us through part of his tribe's rain forest, explaining about the various plants and trees and their uses in the local culture. Also heard a creation myth. Beautiful scenery. Well...More
