The Tour

Experience our regions rich Aboriginal history and culture on this exclusive day tour adventure from Cairns and Port Douglas. Travel along one of Australia’s most scenic coastal drives as you head north of Port Douglas to Cooya Beach. (Kuku Kuku) This special place is a traditional fishing ground of the Kuku Yalanji people.

You are greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony. This ceremony is conducted by Aboriginal people with specialised cultural knowledge to welcome people to their land. It is a ceremony of spiritual cleansing, to ward of evil spirits and to ensure that while you are on the traditional land of Kuku Yalanji people you are accepted and honoured.

This unique coastal place has three diverse ecosystems-beach, mangroves and coastal reef. Here one of the Kubirri Warra brothers of Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat Tours will teach you how to throw a spear and other Aboriginal hunting techniques. Walk with the brothers on their traditional lands as you learn how to track and hunt for fish, mud crabs, mussels through the mangroves. Search and try bush tucker and bush medicines.

Enjoy home-made damper, tea, coffee and taste what you have caught on the balcony of their family home overlooking the ocean. The brothers demonstrate different Aboriginal artifacts and their uses.

We farewell the brothers and travel further north to the Mossman Gorge Centre for a delicious lunch overlooking the Mossman Gorge and Rainforest.

After lunch journey into the lush rainforest of Mossman Gorge and experience the wonders of the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest with pristine waterfalls, vivid flora and unique fauna. All the while immersing yourself in its enchanting stores and rich indigenous heritage. Connect with the lives, culture and beliefs of the local Kuku Yalanji community and experience first hand, their connection to the natural environment. A visit to Mossman Gorge is a must on any adventurer’s trip to Tropical North Queensland.
