matthew milton 2 years ago I did the day Tjapukai Aboriginal cultural park experience on june 8. It provides an authentic experience in to the culture of Tjapukai people who are the original inhabitants of Australia. As their tagline says " Discover where Australia begins" at Tjapukai, one can explore the rich history of the world’s oldest living culture, dating back over 40,000 years. You can visit the park by day or night and enjoy a unique cultural experience with performance, dance, food and arts. Tjapukai is all-weather center built by Australian government for the tourists, offering unique experiences in one location. Tjapukai is the perfect place to gain a deeper understanding of Australia’s diverse Aboriginal heritage. It is a popular tourist attraction in Cairns and a must-visit when holidaying here. It is one of the most authentic Aboriginal tours available in Australia

Great day
james dougherty 5 years ago

Great day, lots to do at the park, was great trying out boomerang throwing, only issue was not everywhere was signposted well but staff were normally around to help

Tjapukai is a really interactive experience, where you will learn all about the Aboriginal people and their culture and their way of life. Make sure you have a go at playing the didgeridoo and throwing a spear, it's not as easy as it looks.
