Our first stop was at the new Mossman Gorge Centre where we enjoyed a good cup of coffee at the Mayi Cafe before boarding the shuttle bus to the gorge. This is a much better arrangement than it was previously where you drove your car to the gorge. That used to be a nightmare as the narrow road to the gorge gave cause to many games of "Chicken" and when you finally got to the car park you couldn't find a park!
The gorge is usually a delightfully cool place to be on a hot summers day but as it has been so dry of late, we all found it very humid. Anyway, we persevered the heat and took a walk through the rainforest, stopping for some nice photography. Christians mum and dad (Kate and Mike) also joined us. I did dip my toes in the water at the gorge and was very surprised to find that it was extremely cold! Here are some photos from the day.
