The Aboriginal guided rainforest walk is an interpretive tour, showing how the indigenous people have used the rainforest for centuries as their medicine chest, hardware store, supermarket and church. Native plants, some rare and endangered, from the worlds oldest rainforest are the stars of the 1½ hour tour.

Art classes begin in Daintree Eco Lodge & Spas Aboriginal Art Gallery, which showcases world class works of art by local Aboriginal artists. Visitors are encouraged to create their own Aboriginal inspired masterpieces using the natural ochres, incorporating Aboriginal techniques as inspiration.
