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.

This is a must see art gallery and cultural centre. Beautifully curated and sublime atmosphere. The suspended seats with the motion sensor story telling are so clever. A good range of Indigenous art, jewellery, books and other Indigenous made products such as cups, textiles and music. The cultural artefacts were great, the hand dug banksia canoe found semi buried in Corindi Lake is probably the best Aboriginal artefact I've seen. The centre also offers cultural and bush food tours which we're very interested to do next time. A brilliant way to learn more about this amazing culture of which we should be so proud.

We recently dropped into the Yarrawarra Cultural Centre after seeing a sign for it on our way into Woolgoolga from Wooli. What a find!!! The history centre really opened our eyes to the true history of the local area and the connection of the mob. Gift shop was tops and we picked up some real treats. Staff were lovely and informative. We’ll be back. Hot tip, don’t drive past.

My wife and I did the walking tour with bush tucker tasting. Uncle Milton and Steven shared some local knowledge of food and medicine plants plus a bit of local history. They also shared info on some beautiful nearby places we wouldn't have otherwise known about. The food was excellent, mixing Gumbaynggirr and international ingredients and culinary traditions to create delicious dishes that you'd be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Definately worth a visit if you're in Coffs.

This was educational and what great art they have. Easy to find and with a little coffee shop on the side makes for way to explore and find more information on the area.

Best lunch north of Sydney! Tasting plates of mix of local bush foods using stylish methods and sustainable table ware. Thai prawn and crocodile croquettes, shaved smoked kangaroo on bite-sized mini dampers, goats feta and lemon myrtle dressing, crocodile coconut curry, kangaroo bourguinon, dark and whites chocolate truffles with lemon myrtle, fabulous local coffee and good hot chocolate. Co-located with Aboriginal arts centre in a wonderful natural setting with local wildlife kookaburras and kangaroos. Great service! Very reasonably priced.

If travelling to Coffs Harbour take the time to travel to Corindi Beach/ Red Rock and have a look through this Aboriginal museum which has some interesting Aboriginal Art and Stories.

The centre is located a short drive from beautiful Red Rocks— gift shop, cafe and museum combined. A must see to understand the history of the local Tradional Owners and to support community enterprise.
