“What are you doing for dinner tonight?” Journey into dreamtime legend and discover the magic of Australia’s ancient indigenous culture. Nightfire is Tjapukai’s evening experience meeting the Bama, the Indigenous rainforest people, who paint your face to link you to their traditional land and take you on a mesmerising journey with the haunting sounds of the didgeridoo.

• Return Transfers from your Cairns or Cairns Beaches accommodation
• Complimentary face painting on arrival
• Fire Lighting Ceremony
• Sumptuous buffet dinner, influenced by indigenous flavours.

Follow the Tjapukai warriors to a corroboree celebrating Aboriginal Dreamtime stories and join the Rainbow Serpent circle to learn traditional language songs before the ceremonial fire is lit with a spectacular fire ball shooting towards the stars.

Dinner will see you enjoy Australian meats, seafood and an array of salads and desserts featuring tantalising Indigenous flavours at the Flame Tree Bar & Grill. Relax around the fire with the Tjapukai warriors where there is time for an intimate chat, an end to a night of cultural entertainment.
