The show here is very educational and fascinating. Our kids really liked it, especially the didgeridoo. They also sell some amazing aboriginal artwork.

Very enjoyable but a little shorter than we thought. Didgeereedo music and Aboriginal history and dancing very interesting. Worth seeing this aspect of the culture.

Waradah was a great cultural experience. The kids loved the show and importantly learnt about Australian Indigenous culture. I recommend it as a great add on to visiting the 3 sisters lookout.

This short program, offered every half-hour, lasts about 20 minutes and cost $20 AU. The performers could certainly dance the aboriginal dances and play the didgeridoo but it was a pretty basic show. Three performers in native dress and paint talked and danced in front...More

Hi susieQ304, Thank you for your review. The length of the show was decided based on the feedback we received from travellers and tour operators to our centre. We offer longer and more intimate Aboriginal experiences via our VIP and art workshop packages.

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
