Indigenous tours from Port Douglas and Daintree

The Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people are the traditional owners of the land in which the Port Douglas and Daintree region resides in.  They welcome us to the region and share their culture with us, one that has existed in the rainforest for thousands of years.

Visitors can experience the culture of Kuky Yalanji with a smoke ceremony on a story-telling walk through the rainforest, learn how to create art in a private lesson, or go hunting for shellfish in the mangroves with traditional spears.

The Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people were hunters and gatherers, with more than five groups ranging across the terrain as the seasons changed, yielding their sustenance from the rivers, beaches, reefs and sea. Theirs was a simple yet ingeniously sophisticated culture. They devised and operated successful traps for fish and game, they learnt to prepare the often toxic rainforest foods for consumption, and evolved social mores that bound the fabric of their society firmly. Today, the Kuku Yalanji people number approximately 1,000 and are very active in the tourism industry offering visitors an insight into their heritage as well as a reliance and empathy with the environment.
