Be picked up from your hotel by your Adventure North Australia guide and enjoy a scenic drive north to the small town of Mossman. Join an art class with Aboriginal artist Brian 'Binna' Swindley at Janbal Gallery, where you will learn how Aboriginal people share their history and stories through art. Paint your own canvas to take home as Brian shares Dreamtime stories and Aboriginal painting techniques with your small group. Drive through Shannonvale Valley on the way to lunch and learn about the ancient Aboriginal 'highways' that ran through the region many years ago. Arrive at Mossman Gorge where you will enjoy a delicious lunch infused with local flavours at the edge of the rainforest. After lunch, join an Aboriginal guide from the centre for the Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk. Starting with a Welcome to Country smoking ceremony, walk on a private rainforest track as your Aboriginal guide shares a narrative of Dreamtime stories, learn the secrets of how the rainforest provides for them and experience first-hand their special connection to this ancient tropical environment.
