“Good performance and value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We visited in the late afternoon after most of the coach trips had left Echo Point. Although the three of us were the entire audience for the last performance of the day at 4pm, they still went ahead and put on the full show. That meant five performers and three audience!
Entertaining and informative. Discount available by mentioning 'Discovery' magazine.

“This was an embarrassment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

This show is a disgrace, it felt like it was made by and for 12 years old. Does not worth the money and more importantly, the time.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

As part of a blue mountain tour, we stopped at the center. The show was enjoyable and the gift shop was filled with interesting items crafted by the indigenous people.

I would even encourage a visit outside of a tour as we wished we had more time to visit the center and some of the shops in the town.

“Be a part of the show!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

We went to the Waradah Aboriginal Centre as part of a Blue Mountains tour. After we stepped off the coach, the staff marked one of our hands with paint. We learned a little bit of history such as how they would use a boomerang to hunt for food. Then, we saw a music and dance performance, which was very entertaining. They then picked out members of the audience, first women and then men, to take part in a dance. Good to learn some Aboriginal history and great fun for everybody!

“Enjoyed the center and the show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013 via mobile

One of the things we wanted to do while visiting Australia was to find out more go the Aboriginal history. The center provided us with a brief overview. We spent some time in their "library". Wish we had more time to go through more books. The show was well done but brief. We had difficulty understanding some of what was being said which had more to do with someone in the audience translating for another guest which overwhelmed the accents of those presenting. Would recommend this to others
