What people are saying:

An aboriginal brought us and a group of people in, first to experience the strength standard, he will explain the skills to you in English, and then make a demonstration, each person can throw 3 times, the little girl unfortunately the team is the best ~ then Javelin, he will demonstrate skills, and then experience, facing the haystack with kangaroos printed on the front, it’s not as strong as it is, skills are very important~ Then he experienced stone painting before the opening of the performance. Experience tells you that after washing the pen It’s better to draw by sucking dry~ Then there will be performances, dances, and fire-fighting. You will be invited to dance together on stage. The interaction is very strong~ Remember to occupy the front row~

    Short but sweet visit

    While in Australia, we only had 30 minutes to visit this site. The Museum was small but very interesting and the gift shop very enticing. Wish we had more time!

    Worth a visit

    Why were we the only people there? Don’t know but spending a couple of hours here was a lot of fun. We moved from station to station and learned about the Aborigine creation story, song and dance, foo...

    A window to the past

    Our cruise ship shore excursion to Tjapukai was too brief to do justice to this 40,000+-year-old culture. We only sampled a bit of what this cultural park has to offer, both day and night. It was ...
