A great sense of the Aboriginal journey tastefully done without shaming non aboriginals. The meal was more than sufficient and well prepared. Perhaps entre before the show as the eating time was quite late. As a person with hearing aids, perhaps the sound technology could be improved. Overall a great experience. Catered well for our group of two grandparents and 18 grandchildren.

This was a great interactive show showing the history of Aboriginal people. We had an amazing 3 course dinner afterwards with native food. Great dancing, digeriidoo playing and reptile display too!

This was one of the best experiences I’ve had on my Gold Coast holiday this week. The storyline was very confronting but needs to be told and we all need to learn. Sadly, due to torrential rain, we missed some of the tour and storyline’s as we couldn’t hear over the loud rain and not all the cast had microphones. (This would be great if they could get a grant or donation of quality microphones to really enhance their story so we heard it all) This wasn’t a fault of theirs, only Mother Nature taking over... however they still performed in the rain which was great. Now the food.... OMG! So so delicious and plenty of it and thankfully I could take a doggy bag home as I couldn’t eat it all. Overall and amazing experience. I would have loved to have seen around the village so I will come again next year and hopefully no rain

A great value for money experience for individuals, couples, family groups or Office events. Appropriate COVID processes were in place without degrading the experience. Muzza's opening about Australian reptiles and their place in indigenous culture engaged young and old, with no obvious reluctance by audience members to bond with the main actor for this segment - the Coastal Python. Then the experience began, with 7 of the performers direct descendants of the prime characters of the story it was engaging, moving and educational. The guests walked between scenes where the story was told and indigenous customs shared. Whilst there were moments when the carefully placed microphones did not effectively amplify the performers the absolute silence from the audience ensured that this did not mar the performance. Then there was the food --- Wow! Three course meal is a way inadequate description. Opening with tasters of crocodile, kangaroo and emu with fresh pineapple and individual damper and bush tucker dukka Then there was the main! Absolutely beautiful tender chicken fillet and camp oven beef all displaying bush tucker spices; beetroot fetta and baby leaf spinach salads, and coleslaw that would be at home in a 5 star restaurant; substantial corn on cob; a massive boat of gravy; the obligatory spud in foil and more vegetables. Ample portions of excellent quality. The meal winds up with a desert plate of an exceptional individual pavlova with lemon myrtle cream, strawberries and a taste of passionfruit coupled AND an award worthy fruit compote. The wet bar opened when the meal as served and drink prices were competitive. The staff were all attentive and the performers mingled (such that they could of course) with the guests. The meal left no doubt that this is an exceptional and professional experience. We thoroughly recommend the experience!!!
