Tjapukai opens conference and events space

Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park in Cairns, Australia has opened a new conference space, part of the venue's AUS $12 million redevelopment.

The Bundarra Cassowary Egg Theatre, a multi-purpose function room, can hold up to 150 guests for conference and cocktail functions or up to for 80 for gala dinners.

The venue also recently opened the Canopy Breezeway for events. The space features soaring ceilings with hanging rainforest motifs and overlooks the Tjapukailake. Its natural light has made it a popular choice for breakfast meetings, with the space catering to 200 seated or 300 standing.

The number of team building options also has increased with the introduction of traditional basketweaving and jewellery making to existing activities of spear and boomerang throwing, didgeridoo lessons and identification of Indigenous bush tucker and medicines. The Park will unveil its full redevelopment in April. 

Tjapukai is lcoated 15 minutes from Cairns Airport.
