A member of the Kubirri Warra clan will introduce you to their traditional fishing and gathering techniques as you explore this coastal habitat. Any catch of crabs, mussels and fish is cooked up to share with homemade damper on the balcony of the family home.
Continuing on to Mossman Gorge at the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park, you will experience a traditional smoking ceremony before the Aboriginal guided Ngadiku Walk. The walk meanders through stunning Rainforest and passes traditional huts or humpies while your guide provides an enchanting narrative of the Rainforest and the Kuku Yalanji’s special relationship with this unique environment.
