The website was incorrect and so when we arrived we didn't get to do the tour. The website says it is open from 9am-3:30pm with tours running regularly from 10:30. We arrived at 1:15 to find that they only run two tours per day at...More

I was bored stiff and I can't imagine staying here more than half an hour. It's the pits. Sorry. No more.

Highly recommended as an introduction to the indigenous groups in Australia as long as you go for the guided, rather than the self-guided tour. As others have noted, info on the website doesn’t reflect reality. We saw that there were tours ‘throughout the day’ and...More
