My daughter and I were lucky enough to see the Indigenous cultural performance at Waradah. The three Aboriginal performers did a fantastic job showcasing their culture through dance and music. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I loved watching the performance at Waradah. We learnt a lot such as the history of the didgeridoo and the significance of different animals and symbols. The dances and music were mesmerising and my daughter has been imitating the kangaroo dance all...More

We paid $60 for family tickets for this 30 mins show. The sound was unclear for audiences at the back and it was difficult to understand what was going on as we didn’t have any background about Australian history. I felt my time as well...More

We heard good things about the Aboriginal cultural show. Unluckily for us we arrived on the first day of a new production. It is an Australian history show now. It felt amatuerish and silly with a cheesy time travelling plot. It breezed past a bunch...More

An short cultural display of our indigenous heritage. Only about a 30 minute show, but respectfully tells the history of the area in traditional dress with accompanying music and dance. A gift shop provides some beautiful lines and souvenirs.

Quite respectful show telling some of the history of the indigenous aboriginal folks. The story of the native instruments as well as the meaning of local dance and art is shared. Only about 30 minutes but well worth it. Nice gift shop as well.

Since this was my first time visiting Australia, I was very interested in learning about the aboriginal people. Although this show didn't go into deep details, it was informative...the dancing and singing was very interesting. I left they wanting to know more.

Good fun and interesting to learn about the aboriginal culture. The theatre is in the visitor centre where you can buy all sorts of souvenirs etc. and aboriginal arts crafts and gifts.

An excellent attraction giving good insight into both the rainforest and the aboriginal culture. Fun having a go with a boomerang and seeing the spear throwing and dance skills of our hosts.
