  • Fireside Farewell


Tjapukai’s mission has been about giving Australians and international visitors the opportunity to experience authentic Aboriginal culture. That mission now includes authentic Torres Strait Islander culture.

In this tour, you will meet the 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 will see you enjoy Australian meats, seafood and an array 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, an end to a night of cultural entertainment.
