  • We thought that we would be able to meet some of the local aboriginal people at Brambuk. Instead there are a lot of static displays about the history and culture, involving quite a bit of reading...  more »
  • The Cafe here is superb with beautiful home made food with an Australian twist e.g. Kangaroo pie and strawberry gum scones with wattle seed cream. The coffee is some of the best I've had. The actual.....  more »

  • I remember when this was being built and although it still looks good, some of the displays are getting tired, although the information is still good. Located just outside of Halls Gap you can walk or ride along well made paths. Inside is a small cafe where you can dine on fresh food and refreshments. Outside are some excellent interpretation boards that give a history of the area and the life prior to white settlement. The retail shop is extensive with lots of interesting items. There is plenty of parking under the shaded gums. The place is wheelchair friendly and in fact you can motor on your wheelchair from town to the centre. Very kid friendly with lots for the little ones to do. I would say you could spend at s minimum and hour here. There are tours available as well. Enjoy.
  • Great place for people to go to understand about our first peoples connection to the mountains the rivers and the region, Once you are inside the building no photos are to be taken. The seat in the foyer is made from wood found along the river the seat represents Bunjil the wedge tail eagle with its wings open wide to Welcome you..An aboriginal bush toy of a native animal hangs on the seat, Brambuk is well worth a visit if your interested in Aboriginal culture..
  • Beautiful ancient architecture structure. An excellent review of Australian Aboriginal art work, spiritual believes, geological history of Grampians, culture and livelihood. It preserved the memory till todate.
  • The design of the building is beautiful and the landscaping and position with a fantastic backdrop can't be faulted. But the sad truth is that the National Parks Service is given no money and it shows; the displays are tired and warn, there is very little in the way of interpretive displays or any real information. The gift shop and cafe take up much of the building. The government needs to fund these centres adequately.
  • Spent about 20 minutes as it was near closing time. A very interesting alternate view of Australian history.
