The town of Mosman is a short trip away
and things there move a whole lot slower.
Not far from the town is The Mosman Gorge,
a great chance to explore the rain forest,
with easy access by sealed road.
The water pipe to Port Douglas
follows the road leading deep into the Gorge
carrying the sweet waters of the rain forest.
High above the water pipe, towers the rain forest. towers
It’s an easy walk through the Gorge and very popular,

Water trickles down through the forest in small springs.
