Itinerary



Visit the traditional fishing grounds of the Kuku Yalanji people, Kuyu Kuyu (Cooya Beach), where you will join a member of the Kubirri Warra clan on their daily journey through beach, mangrove and coastal reef to learn their traditional fishing and gathering techniques. These techniques are still used today to gather food for their family daily. Enjoy homemade damper on the shore after the walk and learn more about this ancient culture from your Aboriginal guide. Next, journey to Mossman Gorge where you will be greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony followed by a delicious lunch infused with local flavours at the Mayi Café next to the rainforest.

With your Aboriginal guide, wander into the lush rainforest of the World Heritage listed Daintree National Park. Experience one of the world’s oldest and most beautiful rainforests by taking an easy walk across boardwalks, tracks and bridges that protect this delicate ecosystem. Your Aboriginal guide will explain the rich flora and fauna of this diverse environment, as well as share history and stories of the Kuku Yalanji culture. Make your way back to the vehicle for your return transfer to your accommodation.
