Come and join the traditional people of Australia in a special evening of Aboriginal culture. Tjapukai means rainforest and on this engaging cultural tour you'll hear the story of the Tjapukai people, watch theatrical performances, join in interactive activities and learn the traditonal customs of the rainforest and its people.

The Aboriginal Cultural Tjapukai tour includes a drink on arrival, Welcome Ceremony, Lakeside Ceremony, dance show, international buffet dinner, dessert, tea and coffee. It's an experience that will leave you with deep and lasting memory of Australia's traditional people and culture.

From the moment you arrive at Tjapukai Cultural Park you will feel the powerful spirit of Australia vibrate through the atmosphere, creating an intense and mysterious mood. As you enter, the Magic Space, the Quinkin spirits come to life to take you on a journey through the Storywaters into the Dreamtime. Thunder and lightning herald the Gadja,a glowing Dreamtime spirit, and his opposite the towering , Quinkin, bidding you to enter the past.

In the haunting Lakeside Ceremony, guests form part of the Rainbow Serpent Circle and share in an Aboriginal celebration consisting of music, chanting and dance that culminates in a magical fire-making ceremony. The fire is sent soaring across the lake to become a magical fireball, illuminating the lakeside and the audience. The Tjapukai people then appear in a flame-lit canoe, arriving to escort guests to the night's dining venue, The Boomerang Restaurant.

At the glowing restaurant, the evening culminates in a sumptuous international buffet menu. Then the lights dim and the Tjapakai people take the stage, presenting their culture with their inimitable blend of theater and humor. You will find yourself connecting with their love of fun in a world where there are no barriers, only joy and laughter.

Before returning to your hotel, there is time to explore the award-winning Tjapukai Fine Art Gallery.
