No car, no worries says Gorge Centre
TOURISTS no longer need a hire car to get out there and experience the natural wonders of the great far north.
The Mossman Gorge Centre made the announcement on Tuesday night that they have a plan to introduce all Port Douglas guests to the beauty and traditions of Mossman Gorge.
To play to tourists needs the centre unveiled its latest tour offering, an indigenous half- day tour complete with a doorto-door shuttle service.
The centre has hopes the new tour will accommodate the many guests that don’t drive but still want to experience the culture and history of the traditional land owners.
A 30-seater shuttle was commissioned especially for the tour, fitted with “plush” interiors, air conditioning and leather seats to keep the tourists comfortable.
The tour will include an escorted dreamtime walk around the Ku Ku Yalanji land by an indigenous guide, a traditional smoking ceremony and a traditional tucker of bush tea and damper.
The managing director of Voyages – a partner of the centre – Peter Graves made the announcement at an exclusive launch party at the centre on Tuesday night.
Mossman Gorge Centre’s general manager Ben Pratt spoke of how the tour will add to the local community by generating more education, interest and respect for the Ku Ku Yalanji traditions.
