Your Hosts

Mossman Gorge bnb is a small, family run traditional bed and breakfast perched on the edge of a hill overlooking the Mossman valley. With views across to the mountains of World heritage listed Daintree national park. Our property is thick rainforest with landscaped gardens, lookouts and quirky garden features. We live on site. We have chickens, bees, a large selection of fruit trees and exotic plant life in our garden as well as our own creek and rainforest walk.

Chris and I live on site and are keen gardeners, avid bird watchers and love all things in nature. We love diving and have dived on most of the reefs off Port Douglas. We can help you organise your time in the area with loads of info on what to do whilst staying. 

How we look at life: 

  • We love to share our home with travellers from all over the world. 
  • We try to do what we can to keep our environment healthy. 
  • We do have air-conditioning in the bedrooms and we ask you to use them wisely. 
  • We don’t change your towels every day and we do not iron your linen. 
  • We have water saving devices in our bathrooms and line dry our laundry when ever possible. 
  • We recycle what we can and ask you to do the same whilst staying with us. 
  • We use off peak power and energy efficient lighting. 
  • We try to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible. 
  • We have solar power and try not to waste our power.

Breakfast
with the birds

Breakfast is served on the main verandah each morning at 8am. This allows our guests to take in the superb view across the valley to the mountains of Daintree national park and the Great Dividing Range, as it is lit by the morning sun and to be entertained by the many birds that also come for breakfast. Most mornings the verandah plays host to Kookaburras, honeyeaters, cat birds, friar birds and who ever else happens to be around at the time. 

Early or packed breakfast can be arranged for those venturing out to the reef, departing on early morning flights or on other adventures.
