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.

Worth a quick visit. There is a visitor information centre located at the same site plus toilet facilities.

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.

This info centre is useful for local maps and hiking advice. However the choose of souvenirs is rather limited and the cultural exhibition is rather non-inspiring.

I agree with Dawn B that staffing would have made the tour more interesting especially for the bored kids on our visit. We travelled as a couple but did notice this. For us with some basic questions, a staff member on hand could have made a good day great

When I first visited about 20 years ago this was an interesting and very distinctive architectural building in its own right. It stood alone and prominent on the flat grassy plains of Fyan’s Creek. Today it is hidden by trees + bushes that have grown up around it and it no longer contains the park headquarters, which have moved about... More
