Connect with Aboriginal history and be enthralled by an immersive, one of a kind cultural experience, that is Spirit of the Sands...

Embark on a journey that showcases a spectacular display of culture, history, and storytelling that is absolutely unique to Australia.

Spirit of the Sands is an unforgettable experience that brings to life the Aboriginal culture spanning 60,000 years by way of an immersive Aboriginal Live 'roving theatre' and an Australian char-grilled dinner experience.

Using interactive scenes we journey back in time to the 1800's within a 19th Century Australian village where you'll discover the story of Jarrah and his brothers, and witness the uniting of two cultures which came to form a nation.

Through light and audio installations the theatre is bought to life engaging all the senses, and during the show you'll move between sets and see a range of traditional activities including weaving, carving, hunting, and fire-making.

A true cultural awakening, Spirit of the Sands provides a memorable experience for all!

Indescribable Emotions, un

The evening started with a gentle introduction and sharing of music and welcoming, and then moved into a confronting reminder of the brutal and devastating impact of the invasion of these lands. A heart-felt and must hear first hand account from an elder of the local clan is then acted out in an unforgettable "rover theater" experience which is both captivating and thought-provoking. Feelings of anger and sorrow arise within the viewer, but the complexity and mix of these becomes almost indiscernible as you relate to the story tellers and the horrors they endured. Absolute silence, reverence, and gratitude from the audience during the emotional finale is clear and the story is bought to a close with a powerful music performance. The digeridoo skills, the singing and the dancing are first class. After these humbling and educational hours, we moved into the tin shed and dined in a very comfortable setting - sitting down to a top-notch damper starter. We were then treated to an absolute feast of healthy fresh locally sourced salads, vegetables and for those who wanted - meats. The vegetarian options were outstanding and vegans were catered for. During dinner there was coffee, tea and water available and soft drinks or beer and wine could be purchased. We went in July and in winter a jacket is recommended as the event weaves from indoors to outdoors throughout the evening. If you are ready to hear a real story from the people whose lands you are visiting - then you cannot give this a miss. This is a story that needs to be wide-heard and we left incredibly grateful to those who shared it. TIP - this experience is suitable for children (with parental guidance) and those with more limited mobility were very well taken-care of.

A nice night out

An enlightening history journey. A nice concept to keep audience engaged. I found it hard to hear in one act, if microphones present they weren't working. Meal was enjoyable. No kids meals available, a 4 year old received same meal as adult.
