In Saturdays SM Herald there was an article on Willie Gordon, an aboriginal from the Cooktown area, who has a tour business showing visitors the rock paintings of the area and explaining the culture of his people - he sounds like a great character.

The article gave the tour a rave review.

Just an extra thing to have up your sleeve when you visit the area.

Hi Willie.

We did the tour with Gordon a couple of years ago.
Very interesting guy.
Those that take the time will come away with a whole new perspective on life and the aboriginal people.

I did a tour with Willie in 2003 and he was a very interesting man and I learnt a lot. his explanation of aboriginal history and spiritual history was really informative. Well worth the experience if you can do it. Bart from Bart's tours put me onto him.
Love the bush
