This tour is the best thing we have done whilst staying in Palm Cove. Our tour guide Aaron was very knowledgeable, friendly and his passion for the locations and the history and culture he was teaching us kept us engaged. Because Aaron is from the area he has a number of personal stories he shares as well which added to the tour. We also tried a number of fruits and got to feel and touch various bush medicines as the tour went along. There was no pressure to do this but it all adds to the experience. Morning tea stop - The damper was lovely and we tried a number of different tropical fruits I had never heard of before. Thanks Aaron for a great experience.

We had a great time! Juan is super knowledgeable and was very generous in sharing his culture with us. Our favourite part was learning how to spear fish and catch mud crab in the mangroves.

This was our second of the two tours walkabout offer and it was just as good as the first!! Spent several hours spear fishing for mud crab before exploring the mangroves. Then went to beautiful section of Mossman river to cook and enjoy our spoils. Juan and Aaron were wonderful guides and we feel so fortunate that we were able to share some time with them both. Highly recommend doing both tours if you have the opportunity. You won’t regret it!

We had an amazing time with our tour guide Aaron. He brought a wealth of personal knowledge to form an incredible experience for my partner and I. Aaron was generous with his time and explaining his lived experience. Undertaking a tour of the Daintree and Mossman Gorge with an Indigenous guide helped us to understand the history of the area, the original names, wildlife and plants. The land is pristine and sacred, Aaron helped us tread lightly and respect its significance as a habitat, food source and “pharmacy”. He made a silver leaf soap to help clear up my mosquito bites, showed us ‘Howard’ the crocodile and provided amazing native fruits and damper. I would highly recommend this tour over another provider so you can appreciate these ancient lands and learn about indigenous culture in a respectful and supportive way.

We had a great half day tour with Aaron, he was knowledgeable, friendly and super casual. We saw so much and learnt a lot about the local Indigenous community. Mossman Gorge was a highlight, and our teenage kids loved spear throwing. Such a great way to spend the day while in this beautiful part of Australia. We would highly recommend this tour for everyone!

If you do nothing else in FNQ - this is a must! Exceptional day on this tour with Juan, who embraced and engaged our 4 children with his rich knowledge and experience and deep connection to country. We were all left in awe of his stories shared, bush tucker and bush medicine, along with exhilarating activities through mangroves, water and forrests. Thank you Juan - we are all much richer (and much more informed!) for having had the day with you.

My sister and I had a truly amazing time on the Ngana Julaymba Dungay tour with our tour guide Harry. We learnt so much about the Kuku Yalanji People and their rich language, culture and land. We had so much fun learning to spear mud crab and eating delicious damper. We loved learning about all the bush food and medicine and enjoying trying some of them. The tour ended with a swim the Mossman Gorge which was incredible. I highly recommend this tour and connecting with and learning about the Kuku Yalanji People and their land.
