Experience the Aboriginal dreamtime with an unforgettable evening of delicious food and world-class entertainment.
Tropical North Queensland is a stretch of Australia with lush rainforests and even richer history. Uncover this for yourself as you learn a little more from the nation’s traditional owners.
Tjapukai – a cultural centre that has been sharing the authentic culture of the local Djabugay people for the past 28 years – not only provides valuable employment opportunities for their local people, but an opportunity for you to discover traditions.
Meet the Bama, the area’s Indigenous rainforest people, as they paint your face and welcome you to the land. They’ll share with you a corrobboree of Aboriginal dreamtime stories as the world-famous Tjapukai performers take centre stage, complete with sounds of the digeridoo.
Indulge in a supper of native and locally-sourced produce as you overlook the lake before joining their sacred Lakeside Fire Ceremony – closing in an awe-inspiring fireball – and learn traditional language songs.
End your night by the campfire, swapping stories and hearing more of the dreamtime. There is always time for a last drink and, of course, photo opportunities.
