Tjapukai School Programs
Tjapukai By Day
2.5 hour tours escorted by Tjapukai guides depart 9:15am, 9:30 am and then every half hour until 2.00 pm daily.
A guided tour will enable you to spend time with a Tjapukai guide and immerse yourself in this fascinating and ancient culture.
Interactive activities include the Tjapukai Creation Story, dance performances, bushfood & medicine, hunting & weapons, didgeridoo show and boomerang and spear throwing.
Nightfire by Tjapukai
Night Fire is Tjapukai’s signature evening experience where you will meet the Bama Indigenous rainforest people, who paint your face to link you to their traditional land and more.
Follow the Tjapukai warriors to a corroboree celebrating Aboriginal Dreamtime stories and join the Rainbow Serpent circle to learn traditional language songs before the ceremonial fire is lit with a spectacular fire ball shooting towards the stars.
Dinner is an array of Australian meats, seafood and an selection of salads and desserts featuring tantalising Indigenous flavours at the Flame Tree Bar & Grill. Relax around the fire with the Tjapukai warriors where there is time for an intimate chat and photo opp. The perfect end to a night of cultural entertainment.
