The Kuku Yalanji are the indigenous inhabitants of the land which stretches from around Cooktown in the north to near Chillagoe in the west and Port Douglas in the South.

We are true rainforest people who live in harmony with our environment. We are part of it and it is part of us. Our culture has always involved a deep respect for nature and an intimate knowledge of its cycles.

What we know about the plants of the rainforest we learnt from our elders - our fathers, grand fathers, mothers, uncles and aunties. What we know belongs to them, to our culture and our traditions. Mossman Gorge is a very special place...its water, its rainforests and its mountains hold many stories...We invite you to share it with us.
