Located in Cairns, Tjapukai has been sharing the authentic culture of the local Djabugay people for the past 28 years, providing employment opportunities for their people and giving performers immense pride in demonstrating their culture.


More than 3 million people around the world have discovered how to “shake a leg” by joining in traditional performances drawn from Diabugay corroborees, they have learnt how to make fire without a matchstick and been enthralled with the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo.

From its inception, Tjapukai’s mission has been about giving Australians and international visitors the opportunity to experience authentic Aboriginal culture and interact with Traditional Owners. That mission now includes authentic Torres Strait Islander culture.
