Divided in four distinct areas, you’ll have enough on your platter for the entire evening. Tjapukai is a sheer delight for theatre lovers as you watch realistically depicted plays in various sections of the cultural park. Acquaint yourself with the history, dance and camp village life, try your hand at the didgeridoo and practice boomerang throwing. Follow it up with some exquisite cuisine at the Boomerang restaurant and watch performances by world famous Tjapukai dancers.
A concoction of culture, Broadway-style theatre and black humour, the Tjapukai Park will take you to the world of the aboriginis.
You will be picked up from your hotel and travel in an air conditioned vehicle to the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park.
From the moment you arrive at Tjapukai you will feel the powerful and evocative aboriginal spirit vibrate through the atmosphere, creating an intense and mysterious mood. You will be greeted by Tjapukai members and escorted to the Magic Space. The Quinkin spirits come to life in the Magic Space taking you on a journey through the Storywaters into the Dreamtime.
In the haunting Lakeside Ceremony you 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 evening culminates in a sumptuous dinner. You will take a flame lit pathway to the evening's dinner venue. Enjoy your dinner.
The Aboriginal experience is completed with a performance by the world famous Tjapukai Dance Troupe.
You will leave the park and return to your hotel. The tour ends at your hotel.
