Hidden in front of everyone but those on the trains. This is wonderful art as if you see Australia in a room behind a cafe & store. You need not go all the way to Broken Hill to see anything similar, but that is not...More

My initial reaction was WOW! Wonderfully painted and displayed in 3D, this is so worthwhile a visit. Small charge, cafe on the spot or other eateries nearby as well as the National Park down the road. Well worth a visit.

I decided to visit after reading about it on Trip Advisor. Entrance to the painted panorama is through the cafe, and then through the gift shop. When I first walked in, I started thinking, is this it? It's a circular room with the panorama painted...More

This is a circular original painting highlighting various regions of Australia. You walk into a room that complements the painting with different fauna/flora and animals of the different regions represented. If the viewing was free I would put this at a 5, however, having I...More
