The team here at WW Souvenirs Gifts & Homewares had a friendly visit from the lovely ladies Shirley (Tjapukai General Manager) and Ashley (Events Coordinator) from Tjapukai. Tjapukai is where Australia begins. It is Australia’s most accessible venue to experience authentic Aboriginal culture dating back over 40,000 years.
Located in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland, Tjapukai has been sharing the authentic culture and traditions of the local Djabugay people for the past 28 years, providing employment opportunities for their people and giving the performers immense pride in demonstrating their culture.
Tjapukai’s mission has been about giving Australians and international visitors the opportunity to experience authentic Aboriginal culture and interact with Traditional Owners.
