Had the pleasure of embarking on this journey with a mixed group of Indigenous tourism operators from WA and a bunch of whitefellas. Adventure North is the tour operator and uses its 4wd busses to link a number of small Indigenous tourism ventures between Cairns and Cooktown. You need to be adventurous and reasonably mobile but age is not an issue. Dont be put off by the trek thru the mangroves in search of shellfish and crabs, the fresh seafood morning tea afterwards more than makes up for it. After a drive thru the Daintee you come out of the rainforest at Wugal Wugal and visit the nearby falls and laer a bit about the local culture, It then on to Cooktown to meet up with Willie Gordon a local elder who loves to show off his country.
Thanks Maryanne for putting this together and to Brandon, The Walker sisters and Willie for allowing us whitefellas to see some of your country thru your eyes.
