What could be more pleasurable in life?
Mossman, just twenty minute’s drive north of Port Douglas, past Rainforest-clad mountains and fields of waving sugar cane, is the nerve centre of the Far North’s thriving sugar industry.
Brimming with old-fashioned country charm and hospitality, Mossman boasts the closest, most accessible Rainforest to Port Douglas – Mossman Gorge. This features walking tracks, freshwater swimming holes, guided walking tours and tours with the area’s traditional Aboriginal landowners as guides.
Through an avenue of Rainforest trees, the main road continues north from Mossman past an 18-hole country golf course and the picturesque Whyanbeel Valley, with its unique theatre in the Rainforest, heliconia farm and rare fruit farm.
Five minutes further north is Wonga Beach. Here you’ll find a restaurant fashioned out of old railway carriages, one of Queensland’s largest orchid farms, and a wonderfully secluded beach that you can explore either on foot or on horseback.
