Walking Track Description

The longer of two easy walks in the world-heritage listed Mossman Gorge, near Port Douglas, Mossman and Cape Tribulation, the Rainforest Circuit track is a continuation of the River Circuit track.

Start at the carpark as before, and follow the River Circuit until just before the Mossman River lookout, where you reach the turnoff to the Rex Creek suspension bridge. Cross Rex Creek and follow the track upstream to the Manjal Dimbi lookout for a long view down the creek.

From here you commence the easy, 2km stroll through the rainforest. Along the way there are informative signs describing local flora and fauna, such as the eastern yellow robin and Boyd’s forest dragon. The signs also descrbe how the local  Kuku Yalanji people use the plants and forest in their traditional life.

The track loops around in a slow circle until it returns to the River Circuit via Rex Creek.
