Protecting, Practicing, and Sharing Our Culture

Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat Tours was established in 1999 by brothers Linc & Brandon Walker and is  100% Aboriginal owned and operated.

Just a 15-minute drive north of Port Douglas is beautiful Cooya Beach (Kuyu Kuyu), a special place and traditional fishing grounds of the Kuku Yalanji people and home to Kuku Yalanji Cultural Habitat Tours.

If you feel it’s time to get native, join one of the Kubirri Warra guides on their beach, mudflat, and mangrove walk! Brothers, Linc and Brandon Walker follow the traditions of their ancestors by educating visitors about their traditional country on the far northeast coast of Australia. This unique coastal place has three diverse ecosystems – beach, mangroves, and coastal reef – that are connected to each other by the ever-changing mudflats and tidal lagoons. Today, the brothers can teach you how to throw a spear, hunt whilst stalking and observing wildlife, and how to find plants used for food and medicine. They’ll also introduce you to some of their family members and share some of their extensive knowledge of this special area and how they care for their country.

Three types of tours are on offer.

Coastal Beach And Mangrove Walk

Experience traditional Aboriginal fishing activities such as mud-crabbing and spear-fishing.

Coastal Beach Night Time Walk

Night-time fishing activities are still a common traditional activity. Enjoy the opportunity to experience it with a local family. New lighting technology is sure to make your experience one to remember.

Private Tours

Book a private tour for a family, group, or corporate activity.
