First Nations Daintree Adventures

Jul 22, 2021

As Silky Oaks Lodge heads toward their grand reopening this spring, the Tropical North Queensland luxury lodge will be offering a range of guest experiences by First Nations owned and operated Mossman Gorge Dreamtime Walks and Walkabout Cultural Adventures. 

First Nations Kuku Yalanji peoples are the Traditional Owners of the land extending from south of Mossman to Cooktown in the north, and Palmer River in the west, living in harmony with the rainforest since for time immemorial. Guests at Silky Oaks Lodge meet Kuku Yalanji and learn about their beliefs and way of life during an Indigenous guided Ngadiku Dreamtime walking tour of Mossman Gorge.

Walkabout Cultural Adventures offers intimate half day and full day tours of The Daintree and Mossman Gorge, as well as private tailored tours. Owner Juan Walker has been guiding in the Port Douglas Daintree region for almost 20 years. The Ngana Julaymba Dungay: We All Going Daintree tour is based around Mossman Gorge, coastal habitats and the Daintree river area, while the Ngana Kulkinga Dungay: We All Going Cape Tribulation tour travels north of the Daintree river to explore the Daintree and the environment around Cape Tribulation.
