This was part of a day tour that I was on and to say I was skeptical was an understatement having grown up in the Mid-West subjected to "Authentic Indian Pow Wows". However, this Aboriginal presentation was well done and was informative without being too long. It was also offered in many languages, so clearly tourist oriented. But, was still... More

We have been most fortunate to see a number of Maori performances in our life time. This one was unique in the story telling of the didgeridoo (and a great performance of it) and the story line of the dance as it was explained. It was a short show, I do wish it was longer, but it was very well... More

I expected more, like history, when we visited Waradah Aboriginal Center. It was really only a short show and shop with gifts. If you will be in the area, it's worth seeing the show but I would not go out of my way.

We stopped as a rainy day alternate activity, and I am happy we did. Despite the hundreds of tribes, they are the same in spirit no matter what the skin tone. I was impressed with the multimedia sharing of the story of the didgeridoo!

A fantastic way to learn about Aboriginal culture through storytelling, dance and music. My only criticism is I wanted the show to be a little longer,

Visitors should not forget to visit this place at Echo point,they have a gallery and a gift shop as well and frequent shows. It gives tourist an insight on the culture and rich heritage they have,and there's also a legend on how the Digiredoo was found.Very interesting dance performance and music by the indigenous people.

Great little information center. The show was very interesting and provided a lot of tidbits that would be hard to learn elsewhere.

Really interesting show. I learnt a lot. I went to the first show of the day so got there before the tour buses arrived. Only another couple of people in the theatre so I got photos with the family afterwards. Lovely people. Nice little shop and cafe on site.

We enjoyed the show here, the dancers were really friendly, and were so kind and patient with my daughter, who had endless questions about Aborigines for them.

We loved hearing all about the differences in aboriginal nations & their dances. Loved watching them perform & explain what they were doing & why. Kids enjoy getting their faces painted like them!
