What people are saying about Port Douglas

The tour was excellent! The guides are lovely, full of wisdom and very hospitable. They are a wealth of knowledge and will seek to answer any question you may have. It was exciting and an honour to learn about the local Aboriginal people, especially the Kuku Yalanji people. If you're looking for a unique experience, to get in touch with your spiritual and/or wild side I would definitely recommend this trip!

It was a great hands on natural and informative experience to remember

I loved this tour as it really demonstrates the Aboriginal Culture. I learned so much of just how we can live off the land. Nature that we just walk past all can provide hidden remedies that now I have some knowledge of and can share with others. Keeping in mind for survival and connecting with the earth!

Every thing was awesome

Bridget, Brandon, Aaron and everyone else associated with the tour were very knowledgeable and freely shared this with us. No questions went unanswered. I learned so much that upon returning to my hotel I had to write it all down and have already started to share it with my friends and family!

Bridgette was amazing! We learnt soo much about aboriginal culture and she went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic day!

Bridget was an Amazing guide, suggest bringing water shoes and be prepared for a true adventure!
