Be apart of something special on this unique cultural day tour to the Daintree National Park. Learn Aboriginal fishing techniques, sample native food, experience a spiritual cleansing ceremony and explore the rainforest and traditional Aboriginal land; a perfect introduction to the real Australia!
Learn how to identify and catch land and sea bush tucker on Cooya Beach, a traditional fishing ground of the Kuku Yalanji people. This unique coastal place has three diverse ecosystems – beach, mangrove and coastal reef. Here you will be introduced to traditional fishing and gathering techniques with the aim of finding your own tucker to enjoy later.
You are greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony, to welcome you to the Aboriginal land. This 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.
Wander at your leisure into the lush rainforest of the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park – Mossman Gorge. This is one of the oldest and most beautiful rainforests in the world. Stroll across boardwalks, tracks and bridges that protect the delicate ecosystem, spectacular waterfalls and mountain ranges and embrace the unique sounds. Your guide will be on hand to show you native flora and fauna, and answer any questions you may have.
The group will be given privileged access to a private swimming hole that is encased by rainforest. This is an area of Mossman Gorge that most are not usually allowed to go. Make the most of your time here by enjoying a refreshing dip in the water.
