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.

It was wonderful to get an insight of how the artists viewed themselves in relation to their works.
Their sense of continuity of culture for future generations.

We did the Mirima walk and art tour. We had a great time on this tour, we were very privileged to hear their stories and share a yarn at the end of the tour as well as damper and honey. We tried boab nut as well as small figs. Ted also played the didgeridoo, incredible sounds and talent. The tour of the art centre was very interesting especially the different mediums being used. Thank you for sharing your stories and history.

This tour left an imprint on my heart. You should do it.

We were at Lake Argyle and in Kununurra for two weeks, taking every tour imaginable - and we loved them all. We became adept at looking at what was pointed out to us, tasting what was on offer, accepting the info announced to us, and smiling at stories about pastoralists and dam walls and crocodile mating seasons.

The Art Gallery Tour at Waringarri was unique and wonderful, and a COMPLETE change of pace. It took us a little while to settle into the calm environment, and realise that this was a place of listening and learning and talking and thinking and reflecting.

We had a beautiful Welcome to Country, then went upstairs to the gallery space for a couple of videos with two of the Waringarri artists talking about their lives. We then sat with Mr Ted Carlton whilst he answered all our questions with warmth and generosity, patience and humour. Then we went downstairs to the creative space and spoke to Nathan Thomas about his new work with ceramics, and the lady in the fabrics printing room. Then there was time in the gallery space, and finally damper with honey and more yarning with Ted Carlton under the trees outside.

This tour was a beautiful experience, and more representative of the country we were on than any other tour we took. It felt genuine, and warm and welcoming. I wish we'd done more tours with this group.

We did the 1.5 hr art centre tour run by one of the centre's artists' Jan. It was a delight to hear Jan talk about her work and show us the different art workshops to see the breadth of the art being created out of the centre. What I particularly valued was talking with the artist about her life and her family's life. It was 1.5 hours well spent.

Did the Mirrima National Park Walk with Waringari, followed by a visit to the Art Centre and damper and a chat with Teddy. It was really great - Hidden Valley was beautiful, the Art Centre really interesting, but the best part was the chat at the end. We learned a lot.

Ted and Duane were fantastic. Very friendly, hospitable and informative. The gallery also has beautiful art. We loved the chat, didgeridoo and damper at the end. Highlight was seeing the rock wallaby. Great leaders of their people. Thank you.

We recently did the Waringarri Art Centre tour. But this was much more than an art tour. It gave us great insight into the aboriginal local community and was highly informative

We were privileged to have Ted as our guide. He is knowledgeable and has an amazing ability to impart his experience and tell us all about the history, culture and explain things. Ted is an incredible human being and they are so lucky to have him as a local leader

I would highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Kununurra as it gives a great insight

I thought this was a fabulous tour! Ted and Duane were very generous in sharing their knowledge of country, uses and tasting of local flora and giving us background in local history. Morning tea was great and I think the most valuable part of the tour was being able to sit down and having a honest yarn with the guys. I believe it is tours like this are invaluable in sharing knowledge and a more balanced view of local history.
