Itinerary

Travel to Tjapukai

After a coach pick-up from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation you’ll be taken to Tjapukai Cultural Park. The exact time of collection depends on where you’re staying, but expect an approximate pick-up time of around 8.15 – 8.30am.

Your time at Tjapukai will be filled with a range of interactive experiences, where you’ll discover more than you thought possible about the world’s oldest living culture. You’ll wander through the ‘History and Heroes’ exhibition, a homage to Indigenous heroes past and present; you’ll learn about the intricacies of playing the didgeridoo; you’ll learn about tribal law; you’ll discover all there is to know about bushfoods and their medicinal qualities; and you’ll even have a chance to throw a returning boomerang.
