1. Cairns: Aboriginal Art and Culture Full-Day Trip with Lunch

Spend a day enriching your knowledge of Aboriginal culture. Take a painting class with an Aboriginal artist, learning how stories are told through Aboriginal paintings. Drive through Aboriginal "highways," join a traditional smoking ceremony, and wander through lush rainforest on your tour. Visit Janbal Gallery, where you'll take part in a painting class with Aboriginal artist, Brian ‘Binna’ Swindley. Paint your own canvas and let Binna guide you through cultural painting techniques. Next, drive through Shannonvale Valley on the way to lunch and learn about the ancient Aboriginal "highways" that ran through the region. Once at Mossman Gorge Centre, be greeted with a traditional smoking ceremony conducted by Aboriginal people. Then, with a view of the rainforest, enjoy a delicious lunch infused with local flavors. After lunch, wander through one of the world’s oldest and most beautiful rainforests at Mossman Gorge, home of the Kuku Yalanji rainforest people. There, learn about the special relationship the Kuku Yalanji people have with this unique environment from your Aboriginal guide.
