The play presents the story of the experiences of the local Indigenous population from pre-colonisation through to the present day. A unique aspect of the performance is that, rather than being performed in a theatre, the audience follows the cast and the story-teller, who provides important context and background, through a number of different settings within the Beenleigh Historical Village (an excellent venue). The story and direction are excellent and the acting for the most part very good. The performance is followed by a generous dinner at which the cast is present and very willing to answer any questions about the performance and the story on which it is based. It was a very entertaining evening, and also an educational one, and one I would recommend to anyone who wants to know more about our Indigenous culture and heritage.

We enjoyed our evening at Red Sands very much. In song, dance, and acting the story of the Aboriginal people and the new settlers of Australia was portrayed. Very interesting history that is not readily known. The pick up service from Brisbane went very well, as did the drop off after the evening. The dinner that was served was delicious and there was plenty to eat. A great way for us to say goodbye to Australia as we were leaving the next morning.

Storytelling with a twist. Audience had to move from one station to another according to the flow of the story.

Enjoyed a very entertaining night with new understanding of a very sad time in history. The traditional dancers were fabulous and the meal after was terrific. The staff were warm and helpful throughout the night and a special thank you to the 2 staff members who came and chatted to us while we were waiting for the RACQ. A must see for all.
