THE BAMA WAY.
Travel The Bama Way and experience Tropical North Queensland through the eyes of the people who have been its custodians for tens of thousands of years.
The Bama Way is an Aboriginal journey from Cairns to north of Cooktown, following story-lines through the two Aboriginal nations of the Kuku Yalanji and Guugu Yimithirr peoples.
The Bama Way links three Aboriginal-owned tours operated by the traditional custodians of the local area. Each tour provides a unique experience which will teach you about different facets of Aboriginal culture:
| ||At Cooya Beach you can track coastal resources and throw a spear with the Kuku Yalanji brothers of the Kubirri Warra clan; |
| ||at Wujal Wujal, see the Bloomfield Falls with family members of the Walker family and learn about the resources of the rainforest; and |
| || |
high in the hills outside Cooktown, walk amongst ancestral rock art sites with Nugal-warra Elder and story-teller, Willie Gordon of Guurrbi Tours, who explains the meanings – both practical and spiritual – behind the art, giving you an unforgettable insight into Aboriginal society and spirituality. Guurrbi Tours only operate 1st April until 30th November inclusive.
You can go on all the tours, or just one….drive yourself, fly, or take a guided tour with your own knowledgeable driver/guide. The choice is yours – but please do come. Become part of the story!
