Important Notice to All Our Valued Guests

We are thrilled to share some fantastic news! Our popular ‘River Drift Snorkelling’ tour has evolved to bring you a new experience, now aptly renamed ‘River Drift’. This change captures the essence of our tour while adjusting to the new wonders nature has presented.

After Cyclone Jasper, the Mossman River has unveiled new areas for us to explore, adding a fresh dimension to the River Drift experience. While we have temporarily paused snorkelling, we’ve added an exciting river walk, leading you through previously unseen parts of the river. Equipped with river sleds, you’ll experience varying river flows—from calm glides under lush canopies to exhilarating navigation through faster currents.

Our Full Day Mossman Gorge Tour, featuring the revamped ‘River Drift’, is still operating. This day-long adventure blends the natural beauty and cultural richness of the Mossman Gorge area, now enriched with the River Drift experience.

Join us to celebrate this new chapter! We’re eager to share the revitalised ‘River Drift’ and the Full Day Mossman Gorge Tour with you. Your support means everything to us as we continue to offer unforgettable experiences in this spectacular part of the world.

Looking forward to welcoming you back for more river and rainforest adventures!

Warmest regards,

The Back Country Bliss Adventures Team
