Just got off the magnificent ocean freedom machine. What a vessel, what wonderfull helpful staff. I had dived before in Tahiti 20 years ago and felt comfortable, but today I could get a grip of it and with as much help and reassurance from the staff I couldn't dive today. No matter at all as the snorkelling is amazing and the barracuda swimming around the back of the boat was truly amazing. There are 4 different places to relax and we used them all at some point during the day. Money very well spent and I would recommend this to anyone at any level of competence.David Fitchett
Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park prides itself on its authenticity. The Tjapukai people inhabited the tropic region that extends from Cairns to Port Douglas and inland to Kuranda. Their name means ‘People of the Rainforest'. The displays and cultural dances within the park portray the Dreamtime through to the present reality of today's Tjapukai people.
What to see
- The Magic Space is a museum that houses artifacts once used by the Tjapukai people up to 40,000 years ago.
- The Creation Theatre is where live actors interact with giant holograms to retell the spiritual and traditional beliefs of the Tjapukai people. This performance, one of the most popular at the park, is told in the Tjapukai language but the audience can use personal headsets and hear the story told in any of 7 languages.
- The History Theatre is a small movie theatre playing a 20-minute presentation. This theatre recounts the history of Aboriginal people in the last 120 years. It discusses the effects of modern man's impact on the 40,000-year-old culture. This presentation can be confronting to some people whom are unaware of how the Aboriginal culture has been affected by European settlers.
- The Dance Theatre is a live performance set outdoors, celebrating traditional Tjapukai corroborees and songs.
- The Tjapukai Camp is where visitors can throw a boomerang, play a didgeridoo and sample bush foods with the Tjapukai people.
- The Gallery houses artwork, artifacts and souvenirs.
- The Boomerang Restaurant is an air-conditioned 5-star buffet restaurant, with an emphasis on native foods.
The Tjapukai Aboriginal Culture Park is open daily from 9.00am to 5.00pm. They are closed only on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
