Here you will participate in a traditional â€œwelcome to countryâ€ and smoking ceremony with a kuku yalanji tribal member. Followed by a quick breakfast stop (at own cost) before heading to Mosman Gorge for a refreshing swim in the cascading water and majestic pools that make Mossman gorge such an iconic place to visit.
