Begin your tour with a visit to Tjapukai Cultural Park, where the living history of the Indigenous people of the region is celebrated. Here you can learn to play the didgeridoo, discover the medicinal values of bush tucker, throw a spear and enjoy professional theater performances that incorporate traditional Aboriginal dance, fire making and storytelling. An expansion in the cultural center means that the program now also includes hunting demonstrations.

At 12:00 PM, you will be collected from Tjapukai Cultural park to explore Cairns and learn about the city's culture and history.  This tour will include a visit to the newly refurbished Cairns Museum in the School of Arts Building in the heart of the city. Meet a museum guide for an approximate 20 minute exclusive tour in the museum.
