This was an excellent living museum of aboriginal life. The kids were able to paint/decorate their own boomerangs, and there were native instruments on display. The displays throughout the building really helped tell the story.

Some very informative displays that basically made me and my partner cringe.....massacre sites, promises left unfulfilled for aboriginal soldiers....and then some displays that reminded us of a wonderful culture that we need to cherish.

I visited here on a holiday with my parents and younger brothers, we were touring Australia in a camper van. This really is an essential part of Australia's history, yes it is tragic but it must be remembered and this place does a great job to honour the memory. There are great exhibitions exploring the Aborigine culture and beliefs and... More

Very nicely set out. Culturally - very sadly accurate - makes me feel ashamed yet proud to be Australian at the same time.

We were amazed at the wonderful architecture and how it enhances its surrounding environment. The cultural centre was informative and had some of the best indigenous artefacts we have seen previously. The information centre is a good place to start your trip as they have lots of area maps, important information and tours if you want to get to places... More

A good reminder of Australia's hidden history as to how the indigenous population was treated. Pity it's not funded by Government anymore, hope it continues to teach the school children the REAL history, worth a visit.

View some aboriginal art works and read about the culture of the people. Also a good indoor place to cool down from the summer heat. There is a walking trail behind the centre, which we walked.

This is my second time visiting the centre and I loved every minute of it once again! The artifacts are very cool and the artwork/pictures/information is very informative and fun. The centre itself is a great architectural icon and is designed to look like a bird with open wings. Definitely worth a visit and make sure you walk around the... More
