The Eastern Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people are the Traditional Owners of Daintree National Park. They welcome you to their country and ask that you respect their special place.


Mossman Gorge begins 80km north of Cairns; Cape Tribulation begins 110km north of Cairns.

What's special

Daintree National Park is comprised of two sections—Mossman Gorge and Cape Tribulation. The crystal-clear waters of the Mossman River cascade over granite boulders in Mossman Gorge while Cape Tribulation features rainforest-clad mountains that sweep down to long sandy beaches.
