DAY 2: Daintree Dreaming Tour
Tour Operator: Adventure North Australia
This exclusive and fully immersive rainforest tour allows you to join in a genuine Aboriginal cultural experience in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park. Gain an understanding of the region’s original indigenous culture with this unique experience as you are guided through the traditional rainforest, mangrove and beach habitats of the Kuku Yalanji tribe.
The Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat tour will take you to the beautiful Cooya Beach, a traditional fishing ground, where you will join one of the Kubirri Warra brothers on a beach, mudflat and mangrove walk. This area is filled with diverse wildlife as a meeting point for three different ecosystems; beach, mangrove and coastal reef. Here you will learn the ways of traditional fishing and gathering, a real chance to catch your own bush tucker! Back at the family home, your catch will be cooked up and served with homemade damper. Then it’s on to Mossman Gorge where you are greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony. While at the Mossman Gorge Centre, enjoy lunch at the edge of the rainforest. You will also have time to explore the art gallery featuring work from local artists.
Following lunch, your guide will take you to explore the lush rainforest of the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park. During an easy walk across boardwalks, tracks and bridges, learn about the flora, fauna and diverse ecosystem that makes this region completely unique.
