Daintree National Park

Culture Connect offers a range of set departure Tours and bespoke or suggested Charters that visit the Daintree and the surrounding areas. Our Daintree aboriginal tours are genuine cultural experiences connecting you with Aboriginal people.

The Daintree Rainforest is part of the Kuku Yalanji country. The Kuku Yalanji people have lived in this area for thousands of years and their songs and legends continue to give special meaning to this landscape today. This is a spiritual and culturally significant place to the Kuku Yalanji people.

A Brief History

Daintree Rainforest

The Daintree Rainforest is the largest rainforest in Australia and was added to the world heritage list in 1988. The area protected under World Heritage listing covers an area of approximately 12,000 square kilometres and stretches from Townsville to Cooktown.

With an estimated age of 180 million years old, the Daintree Rainforest is the oldest Rainforest in the world.

There are many natural and often unique features to be explored. The landscape is one of striking diversity including magnificent scenery, mountain ranges, fast flowing streams and waterfalls, deep gorges and dense rainforest.

“Culture Connect is about connecting people with Aboriginal culture.”

Our aim is to take people on a journey, not only physically but also spiritually. We hope the landscape comes alive in their mind and they can understand and feel the story. With each experience our guests gain a wealth of knowledge about Aboriginal heritage, culture, traditions and beliefs from the Traditional Owners.

We believe that the future for Aboriginal people to be empowered is to support business ventures on homelands. We recognize that Tourism and Education is a way to keep traditional and contemporary cultural practices alive.

Culture Connect offers people unique Aboriginal cultural experiences in Cooktown.
