The guided Dreamtime walk is a "must do" when you are in this part of the world. The knowledge that is passed on by the guides is invaluable, Roy was our guide and he has lived here for his entire life and has such wonderful...More

We were lucky to have Roy as our tour-walk guide as he developped this attraction. The duration was 1,5 hrs. Starting with the smoke ceremony we followed a trail trough the rainforest, while he explained many items during the walk, including poisonous plants, trees and...More

Port Douglas is a truly lovely part of the world, but there is occasionally a weird racist vibe and condescension towards local Aboriginal people. The Mossman Gorge Kuku Yalanji Centre dispels this completely. The centre is run and operated incredibly well by local Aboriginal staff...More

Absolutely loved learning about the plants and animals in the Daintree from Mooks, a traditional healer. Amazing!

Altough the guide itself was knowledgeable and good, the walk was imo a bit superficial. What bothered me the most however was the steep price of this walk, overcharged for what it really was.

The surroundings are heavenly, but charging $75 for 30 minutes of guided walk is an absolute rip off. It’s a dreamtime for people who run it! I’d say best is to pay an entry fee without the tour and get much more information by searching...More

Cape Trib/Port Douglas trip (2 Replies)
We stayed at the Ferntree Rainforest Resort at Cape Tribulation which we very much enjoyed. However be aware that the rooms get very chilly at night and they have some nasty ants which bite. From a suggestion on this site we ate at the Dragonfly across the road which was very good but it is up for sale so hope it carries on. Also for a cheap meal try the bistro at the Cape Tribulation beach house which is just up the dirt track road. If tempted to go on a crocodile spotting cruise go in the...More
