This was very interesting. I learnt so much about natural medicine and reading the bush. The tour though casual is really worth doing.

As a bit of a 'townie' I never thought that I would enjoy this experience but it was a true eye-opener for me Half expecting it to be a bit 'lecturing' it was actually the complete opposite full of interest and involvement The connection with nature is most interesting

My favourite tour in Margaret River. And i have done more than most locals here! I felt such a connection with the land and the people while doing this tour. It all really came to life for me. I would go back tomorrow! Absolutely fascinating!

sad to say but I was disappointed with this cultural centre. Perhaps I was expecting too much, but this centre is run by volunteers (?) and the information limited. The enthusiasm of the curator was evident and she was certainly knowledgeable, but for me it could be a lot better

greeted most warmly by vivian webb, wardandi woman, then spent some hours learning regional history and family stories. i urge everyone visiting this area to visit the cultural centre of the wardandi people first, so you know where you are, whose country you're walking upon, and that there is so much more to the margaret river/yallingup region than wine, food...

If you've a couple of hours this is a fantastic way of getting to understand some of the history of the indigenous people of Australia.. We did the bush trail & were lucky enough to have a guide to ourselves - this lasted around 45 minutes & was full of facts but 'Rainbow' also brought everything to life from a... More
