“A waste of time”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Mum and I normally love cultural attractions and thought this looked like a great place to visit. Oh, how wrong we were. The displays were boring and the layout of the place was very confusing. The staff kept pushing for us to go on a tour but we did not want to and they then became very rude towards us. Would not recommend - especially if you have children as they will probably get bored and start to muck around a bit. The historical village is a much better cultural location to visit.

“An interesting place”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

to visit if you want to listen and maybe understanding more about Aboriginal and Torres Islanders. Very nice digeridoo demo, and fun at trying to trow boomerangs. Feel free to ask question if you feel to the guides are friendly and very reliable source of knoledge.

“Don't waste your money.”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

We specifically went on this tour as the brochure advertised indigenous dancing..... however there was none the reason given was 'they don't have very many dancers at Dreamtime now because they are at school'.
Poor quality of cultural information provided from local indigenous staff. Emphasis on Torres Strait culture, no so relevant to this area. Apart for digerdoo playing and boomerang throwing an empty experience.
Disappointing and lacking interest.
Sorry to be so negative but it is how we found the trip.
Overpriced for what was offered.

“Okay but missing something”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

I felt this place was overpriced for what you got. Didgeridoo playing was good, boomerang throwing available, but still felt something missing. My brother was here a few years ago and went on Melbourne Cup day. BIG Mistake, as there was only skeleton staff, lno guide, and the excuse was that most staff were home watching the race. REALLY??
