  • We absolutely loved visiting Tjapukai. The team is amazing and friendly. the experience is very entertaining and great for both adults and children. Loved throwing spears and boomerangs and tasting the bush tucker. We first did the night visit which was very nice, and went back the next day for the 2h30 visit. The staff is so natural and we had a great laugh. I would go back anytime. Thank you Tjapukai
