I wanted very much to visit the outdoor gallery of aboriginal art near Laura, north of Cairns, but we couldn't work out the logistics of getting there and back from Cairns. We wanted some direct experience with the first nation people of Australia, and the Aboriginal Culture Tour was a nice alternative for us. The performers at the beautiful, new performance center outside of Cairns were very good and very engaging. We truly enjoyed every moment of the performance. The meal which followed was also very good. The Tjapukai Center also has an excellent gift shop.
This was one of our favorite experiences of our trip. We booked this somewhat last minute, and so glad that we did. The excursion includes pick up and drop off from the hotel. When you arrive, there are complimentary drinks and face painting. When the show begins, the dancers call everyone to the area by blowing a conch shell. From there, you are lead by torch to the arena to watch the dancing. The performers were excellent and were very passionate about the culture. We attended another's Aboriginal show in Kuranda a few days later. This show blew the one in Kuranda away! I can still hear some of the songs in my head as I write this. The buffet dinner is great with a huge variety. If you want a great culture experience, this is a great opportunity. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Cairns.
Love love love this show. Very interactive and educational. Food was amazing!
Very enjoyable evening and very professionally presented.
There were four of us who all enjoyed the experience, we were greeted with a drink and appetizers and time in the gift shop while all guests arrived. The demonstration started in the lobby with us getting our faces painted. They started by telling us some history about the culture. We were then led out to the dance stadium and then to the fire making pit. This was followed up by a great buffet where some surprisingly delicious options were given to try some native foods. If you want a delicious taste of culture this was a great experience. We also had hotel transfers included.
The show was great and the food was fantastic. We learned interesting things about history and culture in a fun way. We even got our faces painted! Easy pickup and drop off. It was by far the best dance demonstration we saw in our two weeks in Australia. Well done!
Nice Tour - they picked us up at our hotel on time and delivered us to the museum and aboriginal cultural park. The champagne and face painting in the museum, followed by the Aboriginal Show, and then buffet dinner that featured a variety of traditional Aboriginal foods made it quite a night to remember.
Wonderful experience - Really enjoyed the show and the opportunity to try authentic aboriginal food including crocodile!!
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST SHOW I ATTENDED..... THEY WHERE AMAZING and getting to try all the different animal meats was a Delight...
