Tropical North Queensland’s most unique venues Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park is the perfect place to hold your next special event, conference, team building or incentive program.

Over the last 13 years Tjapukai has entertained thousands of corporate guests in four unique dining and cocktail venues. Our team of specialist event coordinators have the skills and experience to add magic to any event – large or small and our passion and special attention to detail is well regarded by the many clients who have utilised Tjapukai’s facilities including Qantas Airways, Telstra, Holden and many more.

As well as private corporate special events, Tjapukai is a favourite inclusion as a day touring option, either on its own or combined with other major attractions.

Seven separate arenas allow visitors to experience every facet of the rainforest people’s culture - from the provocative History Theatre to the inspiring Creation Theatre, and the original Dance Theatre and the interactive Camp Village, where visitors can learn didgeridoo playing and boomerang throwing.

As well as our theatres, cultural activities and lectures Tjapukai can incorporate special activities such as Aboriginal face painting and boomerang painting into a children or partner’s program. We also offer private breakfasts for incentive and conference delegates up to 300 people by prior arrangement.

Tjapukai by Night offers guests a superbly unique experience including Fire explosions, spectacular special effects, music and dance. The evening finishes with a sumptuous buffet dinner and performance by the World Famous Tjapukai dancers.
