Informative centre, although not well maintained. Cafe was closed and no food available to buy, pretty much just a scheduled bathroom stop as part of the Wetlands day trip.

Took my visiting family members to this place to learn about the unique ecology of the Northern Territory wetlands, as well as European and Aboriginal history. Their exhibits were educational and highly interactive.

This centre had some creative and engaging disapkys and is worth a visit. The kids loved learning about the wetlands, and although it was dry at the time (they’d spring a leak but it had just been fixed and was awaiting the wet to refill)...More

Have been here before and it is in need of updating which is why some of the exhibits weren’t operational.

good information about the wetlands. A great view from the second floor of the wetlands, and a great video of how the monsoon rains affect so many animals lives.

Its certainly worth a stop here if your passing by enroute to Darwin or a further onward journey on Arnheim highway. Its a great stop for tourist information about the general area and some interesting ecological information about region too with some informative displays.

Windows to the wetlands situated on the Arnhem Hwy on the way to Jumping Coc tour and Jabiru and Kakadu National Park Northern Territory. Approx 50 min drive from Darwin. Hope this helps.
