If you want a very authentic indigenous experience and are prepared to hunt for your food and possibly even slip over in the mud in pursuit of your catch, this is the right tour for you.

Travel by a 4WD modified vehicle from your accommodation to Cooya Beach, here your guide hands over the mastery to one of the Walker Brothers. You will each take a spear and go to the beachfront to practice spearing coconuts. This prepares you for the real hunt, as you will soon begin to walk knee deep in the ocean waters to spear for crabs. Once the spearing is done it is into the mangroves to collect nice meaty shellfish also for eating. Catches are placed into a bucket to be cooked at the main house. During the walk and catch you are learning about bush tucker and medicine and if the season is right you have the opportunity to taste and apply some of these e.g. natural eye drops or edible flowers.


Back at the Walker brothers house morning tea is served as sweets but the more adventurous can taste the marine life caught and cooked fresh. This is a relaxed family setting and the brothers enjoy sharing their cultural knowledge and demonstarted different artifacts and their uses.


Next stop is the Janbal Art Gallery where you view the beautiful art and will create your own art piece guided by the indigenous owner of the gallery. You are most welcome to purchase any of his amazing art works during this visit.


From here you will visit the Mossman Gorge Centre to eat lunch and spend time swimming and walking a section of the incredibly beautiful Mossman Gorge. At the end of the day you are returned to your accommodation.
