What to Expect
This fun, exclusive tour allows you to join in a real aboriginal cultural experience, combining pristine natural beauty of the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park with its truly exciting ecosystem – a day you will never forget!

Travel to Cooya Beach, north of Port Douglas, to meet with the Kubirri Warra brothers who follow the traditions of their ancestors. This unique costal place is a traditional fishing ground of the Kuku Yalanji, and has three diverse ecosystems: beach, mangroves, and a coastal reef.

The brothers teach their guests how to throw a spear, and demonstrate how to search and hunt for fish, mud crabs, and mussels. Learn about bush tucker and medicines before enjoying the catch of the day.

Welcome to Country Ceremony where you will be greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony. This ceremony is conducted by Aboriginal people with specialized 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 on the traditional land of Kuku Yalanji people, you are accepted and honored.

Enjoy a delicious lunch at Mossman Gorge Centre infused with local flavours. Wander into the lush rainforest of the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park, home of the Kuku Yalanji people and experience one of the world's oldest and most beautiful rainforests. An easy going walk is across boardwalks, tracks and bridges protecting the delicate ecosystem. Your guide will explain the rich flora and fauna and eco system of this amazin rainforest. 

We are privileged to be given access to an area of Mossman Gorge that most are not usually permitted. Ensure you bring your bathers so you are able to make the most of this beautiful swimming hole that is encased by the worlds oldest rainforest.

Your day of discovery comes t a close as you are transferred back to your selected accommodation in Cairns, Northern Beaches or Port Douglas
