Mossman Gorge Centre

A “must do” for every visitor to Mossman Gorge are the Ngadiku Dreamtime Walks, conducted by the local Indigenous people. Ngadiku (Nar-di-gul) means stories and legends from a long time ago in local Kuku Yalanji language.The walks take visitors on a journey along private, gentle tracks, visiting special places and culturally significant sites, past traditional bark shelters and over meandering cool rainforest streams.

Guests are welcomed with a traditional ‘smoking’ ceremony that cleanses and wards off bad spirits. The walk then meanders through stunning rainforest and takes in traditional huts or humpies. Experienced interpretive Indigenous guides demonstrate traditional plant use, identify bush food sources and provide an enchanting narrative of the rainforest and their special relationship with this unique tropical environment.

Now thanks to the KRUSE Wireless Multilingual commentary system, non-English speaking visitors can enjoy an informative commentary in six languages that will fully immerse them into the culture of the Kuku Yalangi people.
