Immerse yourself in a day of explorey and explore a culture steeped in heritage and tradition. Daintree, known as the oldest living rainforest on the planet, is home to the Kuku Yalanji people. Walk along the coast and the mangroves before journeying to the incredible Mossman Gorge.
Start with one of Australia's most scenic drives, north of Port Douglas to Cooya Beach, where you embark on a 2-hour coastal and mangrove walk to explore 3 diverse ecosystems: beach, mangrove, and coastal reef. Here, one of the Kubirri Warra brothers of the Kuku Yalanji people shows you how to throw a spear and other Aboriginal hunting techniques. Then travel further north to the Mossman Gorge Center for a delicious lunch overlooking the rainforest.
After lunch, journey into the lush rainforest and experience the wild wonders of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed jungle, home to vivid flora and diverse fauna. Your experienced indigenous guide leads you through the verdant forest, highlighting the special relationship between the people and this unique tropical environment. Stop for a refreshing dip in one of the picturesque swimming holes.
Finish at the Janball Aboriginal Art Gallery, where an artist explains the importance of art to the local culture. Your day of explorey ends with a comfortable drive back to your hotel.
