Deadly after dark inlet tours
AS Indigenous tourism grows quickly in the Far North, one operator has launched a new tour with a difference.
Mandingalbay Authentic Indigenous Tours (MAIT) executive director Dale Mundraby said the organisation was extending tours after dark.
“Called ‘Deadly After Dark’, the two-hour experience will initially operate every Friday night but we hope to increase departures should the tour prove to be successful,” he said.
“Guests will cruise across the Cairns Harbour learning about the cultural landscape before arriving at the specially-built Yulu (stingray) Shelter.
“Here they’ll be introduced to the incredible story of how the local Indigenous people reclaimed country and regenerated the badly-damaged environment.
“All this while enjoying canapes and refreshments made from local native ingredients.
“Travellers to the Far North want authentic Indigenous experiences.
“That’s why over 4000 visitors have flocked to have exclusive access to the Indigenous-protected area at East Trinity with the region’s latest 100 per cent Indigenous-owned tour operator.”
