Worth a visit especially if weather is bad

If you cant enjoy the outdoors because of the weather, this place is ideal to spend an hour or so. Free admission and very well designed, certainly worth a visit

The centre is around 2kms out of Halls Gap and is a gold coin donation to visit. Ask for the movies to be played, well worth watching. The cinema room is well set up and has plenty of seating. Very interesting, but sad display of the history of Aboriginal people and culture in the area.

This compact yet spacious centre comprises a café and retail shop, outside interactive area, a conference/museum building, and glorious walking grounds. The history depicted in the conference/museum building confronts the comfortable histories Australians usually consume. The coffee was the best in Halls Gap and the ‘Wetlands Loop’ walk was magnificent. From the middle of the ‘oval’ you feel overwhelmed by... More

Not bad, probably better if you're not familiar with the area or indigenous history. A lot of it was nothing new to us, though it's really well set out and you're not overwhelmed with masses of text. The area immediately around Brambuk is great though, often there will be kangaroos and beautiful birdlife.

A simple, go check it out yourself, little excitement and informal place to visit to enlighten ourselves about the local indigenous culture surrounding Grampians. Very few staff are available during the Easter holidays and as such, have restricted ability to actually conduct various activities such as boomerang throwing. Moreover, boomerang throwing is subject to weather conditions. Boomerang painting was a... More

We took a great quiet walk through woods filled with kangaroos and bird song on a peaceful sunny afternoon. We came to an open area an saw three emus, an adult and two big chicks. The adult was aware of us but they carried on eating enabling me to take super photos.

Among the beautiful sceneries in Halls Gap, we rate the visit to Brambuk Cultural Centre as one of the best experiences we had there. We learned a lot about the aborigine culture and history. The exhibits are wonderful and the building and layout is really nice. Information on aboriginal food gathering tools, believes, dancing, games, medicine and the suffering they... More

A lot of information about the original Aboriginal people and settlement history is available. Not to be missed.
