Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park

Amusement and Theme Parks Parks and Gardens

Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park is the ultimate place to experience the rich and ancient cultures unique to Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. For over 26 years the park has engaged, entertained and educated thousands through two very unique experiences known to many as “Tjapukai By Day” and “Tjapukai By Night”, each distinctly different.

Tjapukai By Day is great for all ages, offers free access to wi-fi and can be enjoyed no matter what the weather conditions may be. The parks restaurants, theatres and retail shop are complimented by a wide range of interactive experiences rotating throughout the day. Ranging from dance performances, boomerang and spear throwing, men’s and women’s business through to art exhibitions there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Tjapukai by Night- Journey into the legends of the dreamtime and discover the magic of Australia’s ancient indigenous culture. Immerse yourself in the traditions of the Aboriginal people through traditional dances, music and storytelling, providing a powerful and personal insight into ancient Australian culture. Admission includes a complimentary welcome drink on arrival (standard beer, wine or juice), scrumptious buffet dinner, face painting and time to browse the Retail Gallery for authentic Aboriginal souvenirs before departing.
