Immerse yourself in ancient Aboriginal culture during this full day tour. Learn how their culture and Dreamtime stories are portrayed through painting during an art class with an Aboriginal artist, experience a welcome to country smoke ceremony and embark on a rainforest walk at Mossman Gorge.
Your day begins with a pick up from your local accommodation by your personal driver-guide, followed by a scenic drive north along the famous Great Barrier Reef Drive to the small town of Mossman. Here, you'll visit the Janbal Gallery for an intimate art class with Aboriginal artist Brian 'Binna' Swindley. Binna will share with you his culture and how Dreamtime stories are conveyed through art as you learn painting techniques and create your own canvas to take home. After the class, you'll head to Mossman Gorge Centre and learn about ancient Aboriginal highways, before experiencing a traditional welcome to country smoking ceremony as you arrive. Enjoy a delicious lunch with local flavours at the Mayi Cafe, with plenty of time to explore the Art Gallery and Souvenir shop.
Following lunch, your guide will take you into the rainforest of Mossman Gorge itself for an interpretive walk. Meander along paths and elevated boardwalks immersed in green foliage and learn more about the rainforest as the home of the local Kuku Yalanji people. The Kuku Yalanji people lived in harmony with the environment for thousands of years, and have passed on their extensive knowledge through generations.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
