An old primary (elementary) school friend of mine was up here from Melbourne the other week for a holiday with his fiance. They asked about must-sees while in town and I couldn't not mention my favourite little piece of rainforest in this whole area.
Mossman Gorge is a little north of Port Douglas, just off the main highway from the town of Mossman. It's a magnificent stretch of pristine rainforest with a beautiful swimming hole and a 2 hour or so walking track on the other side of a swing bridge.
I could spend hours in here with or without a camera, just walking around and enjoying the tropical lushness. So if you've only got time to visit one bit of rainforest whilst you're in far north Queensland this would be my pick.
