Highlights

  • During the day you will go on a tour with an indigenous guide.  Be sure to ask questions about the traditional lands and customs of the local traditional custodians.
  • If possible, book in advance to return to Tjapukai for the night experience; it’s called ‘Night Fire’ for a reason and it is spectacular.  

Perfect Selfie

  • It’s going to be a little bit difficult to capture the selfies you want, as you’ll need all the concentration you can muster to throw a returning boomerang. However, a helpful Tjapukai staff member will happily help capture a shot of you in action.     

Share your selfie on our Facebook page and tag your best Instagram pics with #barrierreefaustralia for your chance to be featured.
