Overview

“Dreamtime,” the animist mythology central to indigenous Australian society, is a fascinating ideology that has helped shape the continent. This trip is just the ticket for curious travellers eager to learn more about Aboriginal history, culture and contemporary life straight from the people themselves. Up here in north, you’ll study ancient traditions, learn how to spear-fish, wander the beaches and lush valleys along the Daintree River and embark on a life-affirming rainforest walk that will bring you closer to the land and the people who inhabit it than you ever thought possible. The dream is real, and it’s waiting for you to join it.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Cairns/Cape Tribulation (1B,1L,1D) - Take an Aboriginal art class, learn the stories behind the images and take home what you make. Learn about the flora and fauna with local Aboriginals, then go spearfishing with them and eat what you catch. Cool off in a waterfall in Daintree National Park. Overnight in a rainforest lodge beside the beach.
Day 2 Cooktown (1B,1L,1D) - Travel by 4x4 on the rugged Bloomfield track, stopping at Bloomfield Falls to participate in the 'Walk of the Women' where local Aborigine women share their knowledge of the sacred falls. Enjoy a bonfire and dinner with the locals before sleeping under the stars in a 'swag'.
Day 3 Cairns (1B) - Head north and meet an Aboriginal Elder and story keeper, who will teach you about several ancestral rock art sites and survival techniques of the local Aborigines. Travel back to Cairns where the tour ends at 6pm.
