What to Expect
Travel reference:

Discover the rich history of the Australia's indigenous people at Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park with a Tjapukai day pass!

With return transfers from your Cairns accommodation available or self-drive, it is so easy to visit Tjapukai Cultural Park. Once there you'll get to travel back in time and watch the fantastic Creation Story, learning about the ancient Dreamtime world. You'll get to watch performances featuring special effects and more, which bring to life stories from the past. While you're at the park, make sure you learn how to throw a boomerang and a spear.

You can also gain an insight into the gathering and cooking of bush foods and the medicinal values of native plants and learn firsthand from a warrior about traditional hunting methods and tribal law. Journey through the complex techniques of playing a didgeridoo, then be tantalised by the smell of the meat being unearthed from the underground oven and enjoy a delicious taste test.

There are various ways to enhance your experience, including making your own souvenirs, creating natural rainforest style jewellery, or weaving and painting your own returning boomerang in traditional Aboriginal style. Or you can journey through the parklands with an Indigenous Guided Bush Food Walk learning about native plants and their culinary and medicinal significance. Finish with a taste of native fruit jams with damper and billy tea overlooking the lake. Don't forget to have a delicious buffet lunch at the Flame Tree restaurant, as you're entertained by more performers.
