One of the most popular tourist attractions in Cairns is to hold a special event on New Year’s Eve that’s not to be missed.
The Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park is to put on a seasonal edition of its Tjapukai by Night show for the occasion, with lots of treats in store for visitors stopping by as part of their Queensland tours.
At 19:00 local time, guests will meet in the Gecko Courtyard for photographs, traditional face-painting and a pre-dinner tipple.
A traditional Kup-Muirri and international buffet dinner will follow and plenty of souvenirs will be on offer, such as pictures with the performers in traditional dress and painted ‘message stones’, intended as lucky keepsakes.
The evening will end with a spectacular firework display – the memories from this unique way of spending New Year’s Eve are sure to last a lifetime.
The Tjapukai, meaning ‘rainforest’, is an Aboriginal tribe indigenous to this part of Queensland. The cultural park allows visitors to learn more of the tribe’s fascinating and ancient culture and to educate members of the wider public about its traditions and customs.
