Pamagirri Rainforest Walkabout
Looking for a Cairns Aboriginal experience that provides an in-depth and personal insight into authentic Aboriginal culture? The Pamagirri Rainforest Walkabout is an engrossing, educational experience that explores this ancient culture amongst the backdrop of the tropical rainforest.
Join your Pamagirri Aboriginal Guide as he shares a personal insight into his ancient surviving culture, and its connection with the oldest surviving rainforest in the world. This in-depth and interactive experience will teach you about the traditions that were learnt in the wilderness on the spiritual transition into manhood. Hear about the customs that were passed down, such as totems and body painting, before embarking on a guided walk to learn about survival in the rainforest – the plants, fruits and berries used as bush tucker and remedies, as well as traditional shelters, artefacts and implements. Through the story of his own “mob”, your guide will take you on an enlightening journey through Australia’s diverse indigenous culture and lifestyle, from earliest history to the present day.
Please note: The walk is along an uneven path on undulating ground. Moderate fitness required. Comfortable walking shoes recommended. Subject to an alternative wet-weather talk.
