Aboriginal Culture in the Daintree

Many tourists are interested in learning about Aboriginal culture but there is not a lot of Aboriginal presence in the Daintree and subsequently not a big choice in Aboriginal Culture tours.
At the southern end of the Daintree there is the Kuku Yalanji community at Mossman Gorge and at the northern end of the Daintree lies the Aboriginal community of Wujul Wujul, but neither of them really want tourists roaming around their communities with cameras.
At Mossman Gorge Visitor Centre the Kuku Yanlanji run guided tours through the rainforest, and when you go on Mason's 4WD tours from Cape Tribulation up the Bloomfield Track there is a walk with local Aboriginal guides from Wujul Wujul included.
D'arcy of Daintree Tours can also take you up to Wujul Wujul Aboriginal community.
If you stay at the Daintree Eco Lodge there are some activities to learn about Aboriginal culture.
