On this day tour you will 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. 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.

You will be welcomed with a traditional smoking ceremony and 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.
