Summary of The Day: Today you'll 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. This 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 their 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 home and taste your catch of the day.
Then we'll head to Mossman Gorge Centre where we'll have lunch at the Mayi Cafe. The specially designed menu featuring predominantly locally sourced produce infused with Indigenous bush ingredients.
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 your experienced Indigenous guide. You will be welcomed with a traditional smoking ceremony.
Your guide will demonstrate traditional plant use, identify bush food and traditions like making bush soaps and ochre paint. The walk meanders through stunning rainforest on private walking rails and takes in traditional huts or hum pies while your guide provides an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. Home of the Kuku Yalanji people.
After your guided walk, spend time browsing through the centre's contemporary Indigenous art gallery and gift shop.
Your day concludes with your return to your selected accommodation.

It was great to learn about how the Aboriginal people live with nature and use plants and various natural materials in their lives. It was very informative and our guide was seriously like a walking encyclopedia. The best part was when we g...ot to go spear fishing with aboriginal people and caught a stingray!! Afterwards, they took us back to their home where we got to cook a meal together using all the food we hunted and gathered from nature. A very authentic experience indeed. They really made us feel welcome and taught us about Aboriginal culture. Hugely recommended! Read full review
