Dreamtime Cultural Centre - Review
About 7 kms north of Rockhampton Town lies this exhibition centre dedicated to the history and culture of the aborigines who populated the land before the western world arrived. In short but intense 90 minute tours, you’ll be take over some ancient campsites, archaeological finds and sandstone art of the Aboriginal Australians. And later, they’ll teach you you how to throw a boomerang. And if you’re lucky, they’ll play the didgeridoo for you. “The WHAT?” Never mind. Just go. You’ll know it when you see it.

Dreamtime Cultural Centre, Rockhampton Reviews
My 1.5h guided tour through the Dreamtime Cultural Centre just ended and unfortunately I left disappointed. I expected to be given an overview of the aboriginal culture and may be hearing some interesting stories about them. I arrived with interest for the development of the aboriginals, their zenith and also the way they live today. The tour I experienced was neither chronological nor could I orientate somehow else. The guides told the group several things about musican instruments (and also demonstrated on how to play them), boomerang throwing (+ let us throw one ourselves) and the territory where some of them lived. Anyhow to me all pieces of information seemed to be picked randomly and presented in a boring way. In my opinion reading a newspaper article about aboriginals is a better alternative than the tour - altough the guides were friendly and always ready to answer questions.
Informative guides. We enjoyed our visit here
Take an interest in their culture. I've dreamed of meeting them my whole childhood. Although they are not what they once were, they are still worth knowing. There is always something to learn, to gain and hopefully lessen the spaces and distance between us.
Always a pleasure to hold an 'event' here; team are helpful and will assist with all requests.
This aboriginal cultural center could use a spruce up, but otherwise was very informative. The people could not have been friendlier. I especially enjoyed learning about the Torres Strait Islanders.
