Indigenous Rainforest Camp


Having had a great experience with the farmstay I was in search for some more cultural adventures and found the perfect option; an overnight Indigenos Rainforest trip tour from Tully.
On the drive to the camp our guide stopped to pick some leaves from the trees that he explained that would work as metal foil and seasoning for the fish meal that we would cook when getting there.
While the fish and potatoes were roasting, well dug underneath the burning coals he answered our questions about the indiginous people in Australia and told us some stories that had been past on from his ancestors.
After the meal it was time to go night spotting, where we saw wallabies, bandicoots and an almost two meter long taipan snake (one of the worlds most poisonous ones!). The next morning we were not less lucky spotting animals as we woke up watching a big cassowary looking at us. It charged towards us twice, but backed off when we all got together and tried to make ourself look bigger. When we went on a walk in the morning we also got to see a platipus, a big spider and a giant cane toad. Along the way he also stopped to explain to us how the plants we passed were used for poison, food and making tools and equipment. All in all another great cultural experience I would never have wanted to be without.
