Last night some of the team from Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park visited the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary night show Yanguwah.
We had an AMAZING night. We arrived at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm show.
On arrival a very lovely team greeted us and we had a hold of a baby salt water crocodile. We then ventured inside to the rainforest bar for a pre-show drink.
At 6:30pm Yanguwah starts with a welcome ceremony and didgeridoo performance.
We then went into the park and stopped for Kup Murri demonstration and introduction to traditional cooking methods of the Torres Strait Islander people (this was where our dinner was cooking!)
We proceeded to the Aboriginal Dance Show. On the way we learnt about native bush food and vegetation. We watched a fantastic dance show around a campfire and they invited members of the audience up to try and learn some of these dances (quite funny!)
After the dance show we sat down to our Kup Murri buffet dinner which included damper, pork, chicken, curried prawns, fish, baked vegetables, salad and fresh fruit (it was delicious). This was all served outdoors under a beautiful big red tent. While you are eating you will enjoy a great Torres Strait Islander dance show.
After this dance show is finished and you have finished your dinner you then walk to the Koala enclosure to have a cuddle with one of the cutest koala’s and have your photo taken. The koala we had was happy Jay and let me tell you he was a ladies man (you would almost think the photo’s are of a fake koala – he loves the camera!)
Our team had a great night and would highly recommend this dinner and show.
(We took children with us and the had a great time, they were fascinated with the dance shows so don't think the show is just for adults) - Enjoy!
