A nice meeting

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

Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park

This was definitely a unexpected highlight of our family holiday where we were given the opportunity too experience the wonder of our indigenous culture,it was informative and delightful. Our guide Kookaburra made us laugh and enjoy our time together as he explained the wonders of his Culture. Our daughters participated in the art and got to take away a wonderful token and beautiful memory of there time spent here today. The staff were so friendly,the dancers were amazing and everyone was there working together to make our day one too remember. Our family would highly recommend this tour

unorganized

I will start out saying that I actually enjoyed most of the things I saw and the staff was really friendly BUT I did waste more than 4 hours there. They say that the tour (which is the only way to see the place) starts every 30 mins, but we had to wait 50 min for a tour (there was no tour at 11.30). The tour should take 2,5 hours but since everything was chaos we ended up being on a tour for 3 hours and we did not get to see everything. They toke us to the same places several times. It was so confusing and we (and other guest) tried to tell them that we had already seen it, but they kept saying that we would go somewhere new afterwards. It was a wast of time but could be an awesome plac
