I went to the “Aboriginal cultural park” just north of Cairns, called Tjapukai.
I had huge reservations about going because it seemed weird to have a park …well….like that. You know?
I went anyway since I don’t know anything about them and thought it would be fun to learn. Also, we are leaving Australia soon for NZ so I wanted to so something “Australia.”
I got to throw a spear and get one-on-one instruction from an Aboriginal person on throwing a boomerang. It was pretty neat. Also saw dancing and some movies/acting about their history and what they believe about creation. (Everything comes from a cassowary egg.)
Teaching tourists how to throw the spear.
I will tell more later! Gotta go!
