Welcome to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park
Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park enables guests to immerse themselves in traditional Tjapukai culture with authentic music, dance and storytelling by the Tjapukai people. The world’s oldest living culture is brought to life by Aboriginal performers who engage guests with interactive activities such as didgeridoo playing, face painting and boomerang throwing and educate them about Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef’s traditional rainforest people. Exciting audiovisual effects and professionally choreographed shows ensure the genuine cultural experience is entertaining. There’s exciting things to do here at the park, for travelling families, locals or even if your looking to host your next event here.
Founded more than 25 years ago, Tjapukai is Australia’s largest Indigenous cultural park and is in the Guinness Book of Records as Australia’s longest running stage show. The Cultural Park has been built on traditional Tjapukai land in a beautiful rainforest setting to highlight the environment enjoyed by the Indigenous people of the Cairns Wet Tropics rainforest.
