Wawu-Barrba: Healing the Soul
Not only the Eco Lodge itself but also the Daintree Wellness Spa has received international fame and recognition. You will discover a very new and extremely relaxing world as you immerse yourself in the pleasures of unique and by the Aboriginals inspired massages and spa’s where contact with earth and nature form the basic wellness philosophy. The Aboriginal tribes that have been linked to the rain forest for centuries, call this Daintree location ‘ Wawu-Barrba ‘ or ‘healing the soul’. It is the place where the spiritual ancestors of the Kuku Yalanji tribe have their home. The ideal place to completely relax thanks to one of the many treatments with names such as Julma, Wawu Bubu and Julaymba Madjanga, while chirping birds and the natural Daintree sounds surround you.
In harmony with the Aboriginal culture
The Daintree Eco Lodge and Spa are very important for the local Aboriginal culture. Once these grounds were owned by the ancestors of the Kuku Yalanji tribe and they were used as a resting place because of the fresh spring water, the abundance of medicinal herbs and plants and the beautiful fauna and flora on the banks of the Daintree River. The people of the Eco Lodge want to preserve and respect the importance of this place and are therefore living in a peaceful harmony with the local Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal population. This results in a unique collaboration and mutual respect, a philosophy which the owners also try pass on to the visitors of the Lodge. As a guest of the Lodge, under the guidance of real Aboriginal guides, you can take a walk through the rain forest and find out more about the rain forest, but also about the Aboriginal customs and traditions. In addition, there are also interactive Aboriginal workshops that let you come into contact with Aboriginal art and culture and you can even choose to give your wedding a Aboriginal touch. Always with respect to the culture, nature and the fascinating world of the aboriginals.
