Our party of 13 enjoyed a morning at the center and the self guided walks in gorge. However 6 of us elected to stay on and take the 1 1/2 guided walk with Jennifer. This was a great decision even the two younger children settled into the walk and listened to our guide speak of the forest and the traditions of her people.

Thank you for a great experience would recommend this to all who have an open mind and a willingness to learn.

It was interesting to Hear the stories about how the trees, rocks etc were used and the clan interactions. We also had a very close encounter with a very long snake who was interested in our group, we gave him the respect he deserved and he slithered, slowly, into the bush. The operation was really well run : We had a tour booked though our accommodation but they forgot to give us a voucher number, no worries, the centre let us go through and made contact with our accommodation to sort it out rather than making it our problem.

Don't know if we were ever going to catch mud crabs, but our guide Linc was so informative & genuine in his care of his "land", that we felt priviledged to be able to share it with him.

Brilliant insight into how well the indigenous people of the land know their environment. Practical knowledge, interesting insights and much fun for young an old. A must do!

I'd wanted to hear more about aboriginal culture and was disappointed the indigenous section of Melbourne museum was closed for refurbishment. But with Rodney our Kuku Yalanji guide, we got the living, breathing experience. Ok, we were only three on our walk, but Rodney was exactly the right person to make sure everyone saw the important sights and heard his fascinating detail. From the smoking bark ceremony to welcome us to the rainforest, to the closing moments with local scones (damper) and tea brewed on the old cast iron stove, we were enchanted. We saw which trees were used by his ancestors to carve boomerangs, which serrated edged leaf could mimic acupuncture if you had a headache, which leaves would give you pain for days if you touched them and how the women cracked nuts in stones with dimples on their surface. We spotted a turtle cave painting and were told the creation story by one of Rodney's colleagues in costume.
Back in the Mossman Centre, fairly newly opened, we bought good quality souvenirs from local indigenous people who, I understand, benefit from the jobs and income it brings to the area. On a second visit, we had tea and cake, and bought competitively-priced artwork.
