Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bought this through group on, and we tried to go last Saturday and there was no show. The building is actually up for rent, don't buy the voucher off group either they will rip you off and try to offer you group on credits. Make sure you contact the Acc, as the phone number from group on has been disconnected.

Booked a show - showed up - it wasn't on. In fact, they no longer exist! Found out this has been run by a scam artist from NZ who has taken off but is still taking people's money.

I would rate 0 stars if I could! Do not book!!!

We received multiple confirmation emails, only to travel 1.5 hours on public transport to the venue and it was closed. No information communicated to anyone. No one answered the phone. Eventually got a Facebook message with a somewhat cryptic message about the show being cancelled.

They seem to be still taking bookings. The Surfers Paradise information centre had no idea! Thankfully we booked through a third party and got a refund but it was so disappointing and a waste of our time. Not sure what's happening but feels like a scam/fraud. Avoid!!!

Arrived at venue after 1.5 hours on public transport. No one there. Lots of people waiting around for a show that was cancelled. They didn't even bother to email that show was cancelled. Extremely dissapointed. Can't get onto anyone to get a refund. Would not recommend.

Absolute rubbish! Booked online and received a confirmation email along with a reminder the day before about our booking. All seemed quite normal...

Wasn't till I made enquiries via phone with the location that we found out the show is no longer running and their lease wasn't extended. Happy enough though to TAKE OUR MONEY!!!!

Tried calling the number attached to the booking, no answer of course. Wasn't till we communicated through their facebook page that we got any kind of response. We were told they were sorry and trying to refund people their money but it seems from other reviews this is not a recent development. DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR YOU'LL ONLY DO YOUR MONEY.

We bought tickets in January for a show on April 5. We received an email on March 22 stating that the show had been canceled and we had the option of rebooking after June 2023 or getting a refund. Since we were traveling from the other side of the world and don’t know when we might return to Australia, we requested the refund. We received a cancellation email that same day that stated that our refund had been processed, but the refund never showed up on my credit card. I followed up by email on April 4 and April 10, but Spirits did not respond to either email. On April 12, I disputed the charge with my credit card company. Spirits never responded to the dispute and I had to wait until today, June 6, for the dispute to be resolved. Spirits had my money for over 4 months. We would have loved to see the show but unfortunately don’t trust that this is an honorable business. Buyer beware.

Show is shut down still taking bookings cannot get money back. They've trashed the location and left over a month ago. We tried to book for march 3 said sold out. Booked for 11 then got a cancellation email no money back. Then received email of reminder of the show. Called beenleigh historical society who told us it was cancelled and shut down they're still taking bookings and YOUR MONEY 💲💲💲. Do not book here

We had an amazing night immersed in the world's oldest living culture under the glorious Queensland stars. We were touched by the warm welcome, beautiful music, skilled traditional dancers and captivating storytelling - a moving story of the history of this country and the experiences of those who came before us on the land. The food was delicious too!

Nothing but admiration for all involved in this show, would recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the history of Australia and the traditional owners of the land.

Nice evening. Interactive show where you follow the actors around to various scenes. Some are under cover some aren't. Follows a story of the actors family. The show took about an hour and showed various aspects of Aboriginal life.
The evening meal was good. Three courses. Entree was damper and kangaroo meat balls.
Main various meats, vegetables and salads. Dessert pavlova.
The actors were all lovely. Definitely a good evening
