It tells you the story of the outback and what the pioneers faced. It is well presented and so much to learn. Great for kids. The people there were very friendly and there is a cafe and coffee shop. A great day.

What a fabulous Centre! Lots of interesting displays and interactive activities. Spent several hours here followed by a lovely lunch at the Outback Tuckerbox. Your ticket gives you a 12 month pass to come back anytime. Absolutely worth a visit.
