Guurrbi Tours COOKTOWN are recognised as one of Australia’s must-do experiences, and Willie Gordon’s small business has received a host of accolades, both here and overseas.
Visit ancient Australian Aboriginal rock art sites on the Rainbow Serpent Tour. Nugal-warra Elder Willie Gordon takes you through a dramatic landscape to six rock art sites, including the Rainbow Serpent Cave and an ancestral Birth Site where his grandfather were born. Here he explains the stories and meanings behind the art, giving you a unique insight into Aboriginal philosophy and spirituality. And as you walk the ancient tracks used by the Nugal people for centuries, Willie shares some of his vast knowledge of the land you’re in: its bush tucker and medicines, creatures which forecast the weather, flowers which give messages, leaves which make soap, how to interpret snake tracks or give a little lizard a drink….No two tours are ever the same, but whatever happens you’ll be enchanted and enthralled.
The tour includes an estimated 30-minute bush walk. There is a short climb to two of the sites, but generally the terrain is easy. The tour is not suitable for those with limited mobility or respiratory problems.
Guurrbi Tours is CLOSED. Willie Gordon has retired from the business.
Guurrbi Tours is 100% Australian Aboriginal Owned. As you sit in the ROCK ART CAVES Willie will share with you the stories from his ancestors that his father shared with him when he was a child. The stories are fascinating and many people say their life has changed after going on tour with Willie.
