Nope, you're not flicking through the pages of @natgeo, although we wouldn’t blame you for thinking you were 💫🌴 Deep within a 180 million-year-old rainforest, where ​the Kuku Yalanji people have roamed for more than 50,000 years lies the pristine waters & stunning views of #MossmanGorge 🍃💦

Before you explore emerald green waters flowing over smooth, granite boulders enveloped by ancient tropical rainforest, head off on a Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk, peruse the gallery or sample the local food at @mossmangorge centre 🌿🎨🦖

@portdouglasdaintree will have you swinging for joy 😝🌴

This hidden gem might not be on the top of your travel list, but it’s definitely worth a wander 🐚✨ Say hello to #CowBay, with three secluded bays, it’s the perfect place for a little bit of R&R during your travels⛱ If you’re after a bit more action, try a guided sea kayaking tour 🛶 

Did you know that Cow Bay really was named after cows 🐮 Rumour has it, the name comes from local cattle farming back in the day or sea cows (dugongs) that feed in the area 🌊

Don’t worry, you’ll settle into the ‘swing’ of things around here pretty quickly 🍃🐠
