Mudcrabs are on the menu when you embark on the indigenous culture trail in far north Queensland. As a child, Walker and his brothers spent their days hunting for mud crabs and foraging for pipis and clams along these shores near the mouth of the Mossman River, just north of Port Douglas, learning the traditions of the Kuku Yalanji people from their grandparents. As an adult, he still spends his time pretty much the same way, But now he’s the teacher, passing on his knowledge to tourists keen to know more about indigenous culture.
