We really enjoyed the cultural show which offered an insight into aboriginal history through music and dance. There were various show times throughout the day- we bought our tickets from the centre and then returned later in the day for the show. Participants were keen...More

Colourful and lively look at aboriginal stories and dance. Very entertaining and educational especially for those not familiar with aboriginal spirituality and culture. Highly recommended

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.

When we visited there were no free exhibitions - everything was ticketed. It would have been great to see one free exhibition but I still enjoyed wandering around the gift shop.

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.

My cousin and I were the only two who attended a performance on our recent trip to Katoomba. The performance was excellent and we particularly enjoyed the interesting story of the history of the didgeridoo.

Only refreshments at one of the major tourist areas. Very limited choice and really canteen food. Shame on you Australia.

Hi Ray, Although we share the same premises as the eatery upstairs, they are owned and operated by different owners and are in no way an affiliation of Waradah Aboriginal Centre's. You may wish to forward your review to The Lookout - Echo Point.

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
