The Eastern Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people are the Traditional Owners of Daintree National Park. Their country extends from near Cooktown, south to Mossman. Many natural features of the landscape have spiritual significance for the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people. They welcome you to their country and ask that you respect their special place.
