By Day… Or Night… One Incredible Indigenous Experience For The Family


Cairns has a rich Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and connection – and often visitors want to immerse themselves in an authentic experience. Now, whilst theres a few different tours you can book on (ask our friendly team about them!) one of our favourites is the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, that offers two incredible experiences; one by day and one by night.

Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park celebrates Australia’s ancient Aboriginal culture. Located next to Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, you will watch Indigenous performers bring the world’s oldest living culture to life through traditional dance, art, stories and interactive demonstrations.

By Day


Tjapukai by Day is a hands-on opportunity to gain an authentic insight into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture – in a hands on way. You can witness the ancient dreamtime story of the Tjapukai people, participate in cooking of bush foods and learn about the medicinal values of native plants before practicing your spear throwing and learning first hand about traditional hunting methods and tribal law.

By Night


As the sun sets, their Nightfire corrobboree incorporating music, dance and story-telling is held beneath a starry night sky – and accompanied by the warm flickering flames of a campfire. Suitable for all ages, it is an exciting and enriching way to learn more – and get connected with the region’s Indigenous culture.
