Day 2: Daintree Dreaming Day Tour (Departs Mon-Weds-Fri-Sun)

2 hour coastal and mangrove walk with Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat Tours

Travel to Cooya Beach, north of Port Douglas, and meet with the Kubirri Warra brothers, who follow the traditions of their ancestors. This special place is a traditional fishing ground of the Kuku Yalanji. The unique coastal place has three diverse ecosystems – beach, mangroves and coastal reef – that are connected to each other by the every changing mud-flats and tidal lagoons. The brothers teach 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 home made damper on the balcony of the family’s home while tasting your catch of the day.

Welcome to Country Ceremony at Mossman Gorge

You are welcomed with a traditional ‘smoking’ ceremony.  This ceremony is conducted by Aboriginal people with specialised cultural knowledge to welcome people to their land. It’s a ceremony of spiritual cleansing, to ward off evil spirits and to ensure that while you are on the traditional land of Kuku Yalanji people, you are accepted and honoured.

Mossman Gorge Centre – Lunch is included at the Mayi Cafe

The specially designed menu features predominantly locally sourced produce infused with Indigenous bush ingredients.

Guided interpretive tour through the rainforest of Mossman Gorge

Nestled in the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge contains the oldest, continuously surviving rainforest on earth. Experience this pristine natural wonder, with a guided rainforest walk with Adventure North’s qualified guide who will unlock the secrets of this fascinating ecosystem. You will see strange primitive plants and there is time for a swim in this magical rainforest environment, so don’t forget your swimmers!

Optional Extra – An opportunity for visitors to Mossman Gorge are the Ngadiku Dreamtime Walks, conducted by the local Indigenous guides.

Ngadiku (Nar-di-gul) means stories and legends from a long time ago in local Kuku Yalanji language. You are welcomed with a traditional ‘smoking’ ceremony that cleanses and wards off bad spirits. The walk then meanders through stunning rainforest and takes in traditional huts or humpies. Your experienced interpretive Indigenous guide will demonstrate traditional plant use, identify bush food sources and provide an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. Your guide will also demonstrate traditions like making bush soaps and ochre painting. At the end of the tour, enjoy traditional bush tea and damper.
