Daintree Rainforest and Cooya Beach Tour

Experience our regions rich Aboriginal history and culture on this exclusive day tour adventure from Cairns and Port Douglas. Travel along one of Australia’s most scenic coastal drives as you head north of Port Douglas to Cooya Beach. (Kuku Kuku) This special place is a traditional fishing ground of the Kuku Yalanji people.

This unique coastal place has three diverse ecosystems-beach, mangroves and coastal reef. Here one of the Kubirri Warra brothers of Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat Tours will teach you how to throw a spear and other Aboriginal hunting techniques. Walk with the brothers on their traditional lands as you learn how to track and hunt for fish, mud crabs, mussels through the mangroves. Search and try bush tucker and bush medicines.

 

Enjoy home-made damper, tea, coffee and taste what you have caught on the balcony of their family home overlooking the ocean. The brothers demonstrate different Aboriginal artifacts and their uses. We farewell the brothers and travel further north to the Mossman Gorge Centre  for a delicious lunch overlooking the Mossman Gorge and Rainforest.
