Cooktown Tour Ideas
Explore six rock art sites in the company of Aboriginal Elder, Willie Gordon. Willie takes guests to visit his ancestral rock art sites, set in stunning countryside high in the hills outside Cooktown and normally inaccessible to the public. With his great smile and infectious laugh, Willie gives an amazing insight into Aboriginal society and spirituality, and will have you thinking about your own relationship with the land, and how the lores of his people can apply to us all today. Willie will take you through a dramatic landscape to six rock art sites, including the Rainbow Serpent cave and an ancestral Birth Site where Willie's grandfather was born. You'll gain an understanding of the spiritual meanings and stories behind the paintings, and along the way learn some of the survival techniques of the Nugal-warra people - and maybe taste a green ant or two! 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.
