Tour Overview

​This fun, exclusive day tour allows you to join a real Aboriginal cultural experience combined with the pristine natural beauty of the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park.

Just north of Port Douglas is beautiful Cooya Beach. This special place is a traditional fishing ground of the Kuku Yalanji people. Join one of the Kubirri Warra brothers Linc or Brandon on their beach, mudflat and mangrove walks.

This unique coastal place has three diverse ecosystems - beach, mangrove and coastal reef - that are connected to each other by the ever-changing mudflats and tidal lagoons. Here you will be introduced to traditional fishing and gathering techniques with the aim of finding your own tucker(food).

Your catch may include crabs, mussels and fish which are cooked up for everyone to share with home-made damper on the balcony of the family home.

You will enjoy a Welcome to Country Ceremony, greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony. This ceremony is conducted by Aboriginal people with specialised cultural knowledge to welcome people to their land.

It is a ceremony of spiritual cleansing, to ward off evil spirits and to ensure that whil you are on the traditional land of Kuku Yalanji people you are accepted and honoured.

Your experienced Indigenous guide will demonstrate traditional plant use, identify bush food and traditions like making bush soaps and ochre paint. The walk meanders through stunning rainforest on private walking trails and takes in traditional huts or humpies while your guide provides an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationships with this unique tropical environment. You will enjoy a delicious lunch infused with the local flavours is served in the Mossman Gorge Centre at the edge of the rainforest.
