Tour Description

Watch Indigenous performers bring the world’s oldest living culture to life through traditional dance, art and interactive demonstrations.

Join the world famous Tjapukai Aboriginal dancers in a corroboree celebration and fire making ceremony in the Cultural Village. Gain an insight into the gathering and cooking of bush foods and the medicinal values of native plants, learn first hand from a warrior about traditional hunting methods and tribal law. Throw a spear with the help of a traditional milay spear thrower and learn the art of throwing a returning boomerang. Journey through the complex techniques of playing a didgeridoo, then be tantalised by the smell of the meat being unearthed from the Bayngga underground oven and enjoy a delicious taste test.

A sumptuous buffet lunch with native tastes and fresh salads is available in the Flame Tree restaurant (additional cost).

*In wet weather, demonstrations will be held under cover indoors
