Four Mile Beach begins at the northern rocky headland and features four miles of golden glorious sand and tropical palms. The beach is wide, flat and has a very small angle into the sea which is great for younger children and for bike rides. Build a sand castle with the kids or explore and play with the small crabs that make the beach their home. Beach Day at Port Douglas Carnivale is always a fun occasion for families featuring a dedicated Kids Fun Zone hosting the legendary sandcastle competition, treasure hunt and giant water slide.

Popular sightings include giant ferns, strangler figs, inquisitive Ulysses butterflies and Boyd’s forest dragons. A makeshift beach provides a perfect opportunity for a refreshing swim and makes for a great picnic spot too, however children need to be watched closely as currents flow around the rocks which can be quite fast, especially after rain. An eco-friendly, electric shuttle bus operates every 15 mins from 8am – 6pm from the Mossman Gorge Centre to the heart of the Gorge, transporting visitors the final 2 km into the park. To make the most of your own visit to Mossman Gorge, discuss the best trail to take with young children at the Visitor’s Centre prior to setting out.
