Beyond the Rainbow: Aboriginal Rock Art
During this fascinating introduction to the Aboriginal culture, you'll have a unique opportunity to explore traditional survival techniques of the Nugal-warra people through the eyes of a Nugal-warra Aborigine. Departing your SeaDream yacht, you'll travel to the outskirts of the Hope Vale Aboriginal Community, approximately 40 minutes from Cooktown. There, you'll view three rock art sites, including the Great Emu Cave and Rainbow Serpent Cave, while learning about the myths, legends and stories behind the art. These sites are not generally open to the public but can be visited in the company of an Elder of the Nugal clan who will accompany the land adventure and give an amazing insight into Aboriginal society and spirituality.
Notes: Although walking is involved, the terrain is mostly level. Guests are advised to wear comfortable covered walking shoes, bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Cameras are welcome.
