Brief visit as part of Heritage Coach Tour. Current 4 special exhibits will change after 11 Nov 2018, but will be replaced by more exhibits. New building (2019 finish) should be even better.

Quick stop as it was late in the day but throughly enjoyed what I saw. Nice young man at the door explained the exhibits and left me to my own devices which was what I wanted.

If you want to learn more about Aboriginal art and culture or buy some great authentic art or gift and chill a bit in the cafe this is a great place to stop. This centre is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Just popped in for a quick view. Didn't know what to expect. Lovely staff who did explain some things. Just don't expect that much. But was nice to have a smell of the old aboriginal culture

Had nice paintings and a few other things to purchase. There is a cafe but didn't try it. Felt a bit disappointed in the experience thought it would be more informative on the culture. Outside grounds seem to be let go.

Friendly staff person inside. Paintings were nice. The humpies out the back and side were disappointing. There wasn't any talks or tour like i expected so a little flat after the visit.
