A cultural Realisation

From start to finish you are immersed in the beautiful culture that is the Aboriginal. Their culture is one that is desirable and to the high tech world that is our current this is an eye opener to how simple but beautiful life could be . I would love to experience the actual Aboriginal cultural lifestyle for a few days. It is a beautiful culture which teaches love and respect for the land we live on. From bush medicines to food from hunting and gathering to celebrating within a tribe. An experience which is a must for those who want to experience the Real Australia and how Australia should be before it was taken over. A great learning experience for kids as well as adults.

Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park

My daughter and I spent an afternoon here on Wednesday January 16 2019. It was my 2nd visit but her first. We both loved it. Very informative and so much fun trying to throw a boomerang and spear. Our guide Alfred was absolutely brilliant. Would highly recommend a visit.

A nice meeting

Although it was heavily raining, the performers tried their best to explain and entertain the visitors.
