The Daintree's Kuku Yalanji CountryDaintree, Queensland

Explore the beauty of the Daintree Rainforest, with a local Aboriginal guide on Walkabout Cultural Adventures.

There is no better way to experience the region, one of the best biologically diverse rainforests in the world, and only place where two natural World Heritage sites meet - the Far North Queensland coastline and Great Barrier Reef meeting the edge of the Daintree Rainforest.

Your guides offer insight into the marine life along the beautiful coastline of the Port Douglas area and reveal local swimming spots in the rainforest. Juan, the owner is a Kuku Yalanji man from the Daintree Mossman area, with plenty of local bush knowledge and Aboriginal history to share. His aim is to preserve the knowledge and continue the connection between the people and the land by interacting with visitors and sharing the Kuku Yalanji history and cultural practises.

Experience the unique cultural connection to the land. Learn to throw a traditional fishing spear and have a taste of seasonal bush tucker, while seeing the best attractions on a half day or full day tour. The full day tour includes a guided rainforest walk, visit to Mossman Gorge and other culturally significant areas.
