The Aboriginal Dreamtime Culture Centre is an indoor/outdoor museum of sorts, that has multiple exhibits focused on aboriginal history and culture in Australia. It was really quite interesting, and aboriginal history is something I'd really like to learn more about while we're here. We even got to hear a live didgeridoo demonstration and try out our skills at throwing real boomerangs!

This trip to the Capricorn Caves made for my third time on this tour. However, I really do like these caves, and it's a great place to bring visitors. Plus, each time I've been on the tour, I've learned lots of new things. My favorite part of this cave system is the "cathedral." This is a part of the caves that really does resemble an actual cathedral. In more recent years, they've even added things like pews, an altar, and steps for a choir to stand. Because of this, the caves have become a popular destination for weddings AND because of the amazing acoustics, they hold opera and choir performances here as well. Some people even say that the acoustics in this part of the caves are better than the acoustics in the Sydney Opera House. Pretty neat!
