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 Mossman Gorge, the southern end of the Daintree Rainforest.

At Mossman Gorge you are greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony 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 ensure that, while you are on the traditional land of Kuku Yalanji, you are accepted and honoured.

Wander into the lush rainforest of the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park and experience one of the world's oldest and most beautiful rainforests with your experienced interpretive guide. An easy walk across boardwalks, tracks and bridges that protect the delicate ecosystem that adorns spectacular waterfalls and mountain ranges. Your guide will explain the rich flora, fauna and diverse ecosystem.  A visit to Mossman Gorge is a must on any adventurer’s trip to Tropical North Queensland.

A delicious lunch infused with local flavours is served in the Mossman Gorge Centre at the edge of the rainforest. You will also have time to explore the gallery and its artworks from prominent and emerging local artists.

After lunch travel through Shannonvale a short distance to meet with Aboriginal artist, Binna for a 1.5 hour art class at Janbal Gallery, where you will learn how their stories are shared through art.  Here you will paint your own canvas to take home.

Upgrade to Ngadiku Aboriginal Dreamtime Walk. This tour gives you the option to upgrade from the standard driver guided walk at Mossman Gorge. Here you are welcomed with a traditional 'smoking' ceremony that cleanses and wards off bad spirits. The walk then meanders through stunning rainforest and takes in traditional huts or humpies. Your experienced interpretive Indigenous guide demonstrates traditional plant use, identifies bush food sources and provide an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. After your 1.5hr walk, enjoy tea, damper and question time with guide.
