Really enjoyed the show- the information shared by the performers was in a conversational tone, mixed with performance pieces (music, dance, ceremony) was engaging and educational- I learnt a lot as a visitor from interstate Australia! Worth a visit for international and interstate visitors

Not many places in Australia teach about the aboriginal culture of Australia... This was an easily accessible (Katoomba) small Museum about their history and culture, a great multi-lingual performance of aboriginal instruments (Didgeridoo, clap sticks) singing, and dance. Also has a great shop of aboriginal...More

Didn't go to the show but the displays outside were good, plus the aboriginals there looked fab. Shop had great stuff but was a bit pricey.

we had free entry tickets from trailfinders but I think the price was around $12 dollars worth every penny for a 30 minute presentation and finding out their history
