Mossman Gorge is one of the few places in the country that visitors can gain an insight into the lives, culture and beliefs of Australia’s Indigenous population and their connection to the natural environment. Meet and journey with your indigenous guide as you are welcomed with a traditional ‘smoking’ ceremony that cleanses and wards off bad spirits. A meandering walk takes place through stunning rainforest and takes in traditional huts or humpies. The interpretive Indigenous guide demonstrates traditional plant use, identify bush food sources and provide an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment. A stop at ‘the Beach’, gives you the opportunity to watch your guide demonstrating traditions like making bush soaps and ochre painting. At the end of the walk enjoy a fresh and tasty lunch in the Mossman Gorge Centre. Enjoy time to browse the gift shop and art gallery before returning to Cairns in the afternoon. This Eco tour is a wonderful way to give back to the local community as the onsite training and education centre serves as a hub to provide Indigenous Australians with tourism and hospitality skills training. The centre also works as a source of local employment for its graduates along with providing opportunity for local Indigenous artists to showcase their works.
