DESCRIPTION

Start your day being picked up from your hotel by your Adventure North Australia Aboriginal guide. Enjoy intruiging commentary as you journey along the scenic Great Barrier Reef Drive to the town of Mossman. Visit Janbal Gallery for a 1.5 hour painting class with Aboriginal artist Brian ‘Binna’ Swindley. Learn how stories are told through Aboriginal paitings, and paint your own canvas to take home. Binna will guide you through their painting techniques and share Dreamtime stories about animals, environments and language. Drive through Shannonvale Valley on the way to lunch and learn about the ancient Aboriginal ‘highways’ that ran through the region many years ago. Arrive at Mossman Gorge Centre where you are greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony conducted by Aboriginal people to welcome you to their land. Enjoy a delicious lunch infused with local flavours before journeying into the lush rainforest of Manjal Dimbi (Mossman Gorge) where your Aboriginal guide will share details of the special relationship that the Kuku Yalanji people have with this ancient environment as you walk through the rainforest. Return transfer to hotel included. Tour available from Cairns, Northern Beaches and Port Douglas.
