Words Jamie Jansen
A place of cultural expression, where the Eastern Kuku Yalanjiwarra people can celebrate and share their dance, art, ceremony, food and stories - right in the heart of the oldest living rainforest in the world.
That is the idea for the new Indigenous cultural tourism centre that is set for development in Cape Tribulation.
Soon visitors to our beautiful region will be able to immerse themselves in the unique culture of the traditional owners of the Daintree Rainforest, the Kuku Yalanjiwarra people.
As members of the oldest living culture in the world, the Kuku Yalanjiwarra are the traditional owners of the Daintree rainforest where they have been living in harmony with the environment for more than 50,000 years.
A development that has been long desired by the community, the tourism hub will be a special place where their unique and diverse Indigenous culture is being recognised.
