Mossman - Places to See

Mossman
Sugar milling town surrounded by fields of sugar cane.
Pity poor Mossman. There it is surrounded by a million tourists all eager to go and look at things and Mossman only has a sugar mill. The tourists who are staying at Cairns and Port Douglas all speed through the town on their way to the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation National Park. They may, in the sugar harvesting season, be held up briefly as a sugar train makes its way across the main street to the sugar mill, but apart from that they have little cause to slow down.
