This building was full of cultural and local information about the Grampians. We really enjoyed coming here for lunch and spent half an hour on a lovely walk through the scrubland. Just beautiful! We also had lunch which was lovely and not too overpriced like a lot of tourist areas are!

Definitely worth stopping at. Great to read about the many different animal species in the area and where you can see the various aboriginal rock paintings. Lovely cafe offering good food and something different.

The building is very interesting from the outside in the design, once stepping inside we rang the bell a few times and no one came out, we waited for about 10 minutes and eventually someone came out so we could pay the $15 fee for entry which was reasonable. The displays were interesting and the history and stories were good,... More

Lots to see here. We enjoyed the presentation of the Aboriginal artifacts, tools and weapons. Awesome to hear the different animal sounds being represented through the didgeridoo. It was also worthwhile seeing the movies in the theatre.

The buildings and grounds are definitely worth a look. Many of the stories that you will read in the interpretive displays are very sad and you can feel that mood while you are there. Don't let that put you off though. There is plenty of room for the kids to run around outside to blow of some steam and you... More

We visited this centre on a very hot day and found it an interesting place to spend a few hours in pleasant cool facilities. However, there didn't seem to be much more than sign boards to read, although the architecture of the building was very well done. My children enjoyed decorating a boomerang then learning how to throw it.

The tourist shop is well stocked with original artefacts. The best experience was participating in the educational show delivered by two aborigines from central Australia. I really appreciated Tommy identifying with all of us Australians as one, and how we all need to understand the spirit of the land that is ours. Thanks, and keep up the painting Tommy.

We took a tour from the cultural centre to visit some aboriginal rock paintings and learn something of the aboriginal culture. The cultural centre was an interesting place to start but would have been better with more exhibits rather than just sign boards to read. We watched two videos on the creation story of the region and of the cultural... More

An important stop for overseas visitors to understand aboriginal history and colonisation, as well as aboriginal practices and way of life.
