Hi, wanted to know if you did the day or night visit and how long you would recommend spending at Tjapukai. Thanks, Venkat
Hi! Thank you to everyone for replying about Tjapukai! The posts are correct, you will need a minimum of 3 hours and if you would like to stay for lunch and make souvenirs - boomerang painting, weaving and jewellery making or go on an Indigenous guided bush food walk you should allow 5 hours. The Night Fire Dinner and Show is on from 7 - 9.45pm.
We really look forward to welcoming you to Tjapukai.

We visited during the night and it was good as there weren't many people and it was more of a specialised and privatized experience. Going in the night also let us visit other things during the day that are not open in the night.
We did the day tour. Recommend at least 3 hrs
We visited during the day. We were there about 1.5 hrs--not enough time. I would plan more time.
We visited during the day and the three hours set aside for the tour were full. There was no time to wander slowly and ask much in the line of questions of the village staff. To really see it all and ask questions and eat a nice meal, I would suggest five or six hours.
I visited here during the day and found it really good. We watched the traditional dancing, learned about the traditional medicines and foods, how didjiridoos are made, watched spear throwing (with a chance to participate) and also boomerang throwing, also with the opportunity to participate. We had lunch there and it was delicious. Everyone was very informative and super friendly. The gift shop was also great. I think whatever time of day you go, you will really enjoy the experience.
We have been to Tjapukai by day and also by night.
At day time you can do many activities such as, Speer and Bumerang throwing, learn about gathering and eating Bush food, watching Aboriginal dancers performing........ I think you need at least 3 to 4 hours.You can do as much or as little as you can. No time limit.
The night time visit is different. Its a set time of approx 3 hours. You get welcome drinks and Canapés, and after that the show starts with dancing , music and life performance .After the show there will be interaction with the Aboriginals. Dinner is included with another performance. Night show is more expensive as day time.
I think day time is very interesting because of the activities and night time is more entertaining. Its an amazing place. We love it. If you have the time do both maybe on different days.
