Indigenous Tours

Get a deeper connection with this land

To feel the beating heart of a country and get plugged into the power of two of the world’s most ancient cultures, take an Indigenous tour.

Tropical North Queensland is the only region with two distinct Indigenous cultures and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people have been continuously alive and active longer than any other culture on the planet. It’s the ideal place to delve deeper, absorb age-old wisdom and be inspired with direct access to traditional owners, both elders and the new generation.

Forge your own connection with these sacred surrounds – whether it be learning traditional hunting techniques at Cooya Beach near Port Douglas on traditional fishing grounds of the Kuku Yalanji people, or gaining insights to ancient artforms on a Jarramali Rock Art Tour in Laura. Be welcomed into the Mossman Gorge at a traditional smoking ceremony that cleanses and diverts bad spirits, or meet the bama (family) on a mesmerising evening experience at Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park near Cairns.
