What an amazing experience for our family to be guided by Skip from the local tribe of the rainforest

What an amazing experience for our family to be guided by Skip from the local tribe of the rainforest. The smoking ceremony set the scene for a great walk through the rainforest. Skip had so much knowledge about the plants and wildlife, my son did not leave his side. The damper and tea at the end was a nice treat. Mossman Gorge was amazing too! Well worth a visit.
