Highly recommend this as a first stop into Kakadu National Park. Lots of information and well set up display. Good cafe with basic but tasty options, well stocked gift store, clean restroom facilities and mobile phone service and wifi.

The girl at the desk was super helpful and informative for our Kakadu plans. She advised the best time to view / visit certain places. They also sold ice creams which was a nice treat in the middle of the day

This is a wonderful visitors centre and well worth the visit. When I was there last there were indigenous locals you could watch painting which I thought was wonderful and also a good addition to the experience.

This was an interesting place to stop to check out how the Indigenous people look after the land and use it as it should be used, in a sustainable way. Really a well set up Visitors Centre.
