I went looking for info on hiking the 3 Peaks trail during a time of high bushfire risk. The woman at the info desk wasn’t able to provide the sort of info I needed to make a well-informed decision. Fair enough, perhaps not her field of expertise, but she also wasn’t willing to find a ranger for me to talk to instead (“they have better things to do”). I left feeling frustrated. Fell short of the friendly and knowledgeable service I’ve encountered at other national park visitor centres in Australia.

Staff at front desk lovely and helpful with some local knowledge.
Cultural Centre very interesting and we visited a few in Central Aus this year and this was the best so far !
We were going to have lunch at Cafe but no much available at 12.15 ? Also the food was not suitable for kids ?

Visited with young children, twice. First time, kids wanted to learn about aboriginal culture through boomerang painting, was told it's an activity where a staff in the cultural centre guides and shows the kids how to paint, but apparently, that staff for the day had gone home, at about 2pm. Nicely done, slow claps.

But never mind, decided to return when we were near the Grampians again. Paid for it, old staff with beard shows the kids the paints, small sticks for paints, no brushes (brushes weren't cleaned he says), and a piece of paper to follow. Talked less than a minute and left them. Mind you, the youngest in the group was 4 years old. Brilliant, they returned with boomerangs without any patterns, designs, just paint smeared all over the boomerangs and themselves, in almost a pure solid blended hue. We paid money for this?! Asked another staff and they weren't any help, just said "oh it's him". WHAT?!

This might as well have been in a tourist trap or a shopping centre, and we would understand, but to have boomerang painting activity like this in an aboriginal cultural centre? What a royal shame. Save your money and do something else!

Pick your game up if you don’t want to get reviews like this. Have photos of the "amazing" boomerang paintings if anyone's interested.

This is a very beautiful building and I found it a very moving place. It's the best indigenous centre i have visited.
It had several audio visual programs running including one about Adam Goodes that made me cry . There were lots of museum type displays, hand crafts, informative descriptions of Indigenous farming practices - daisy yams, fire control and how they taught us about back burning, info about how AFL footy was probably started using stuffed possum skins (an example of which was on display) . Info about Indigenous people in chains - yes slavery!), stolen generations and their permanent homes. How sheep trampled the ground so yams could no longer be grown .
I came away crying, ashamed and so very sorry.
This is a must see to appreciate just a little bit what we did and how lucky we are to still have an Indigenous Koori population .
