Great facility and friendly, helpful staff. Would be great to see the cafe open (even to purchase a coffee) as it is closed whenever we have taken visitors.

This visitors centre is a great opportunity for everyone, young and old to learn about the wetlands. Very informative signage and enthusiastic staff. Worth the visit.

Good interactive displays designed to gain interest from all. Lookout platform covers a wide area of wetland area, great in all types of weather the car park however is a short walk to the display.

My grandson loved it as there is so much for them to look at and do, great views from inside and out, and it's all free, it's up to you to give them a donation.

The indoor exhibit was well presented but would appeal mainly to children. I was personally uninpressed with the Centre. I'm not a watcher and didn't see very much to attract my interest.

Great views, great video on the full annual cycle of nature on the Northern Territory. Interactive so would be good for kids. Parking easy. Short distance from main road. Recommended.

This is a really good place to stop with children as the exhibits are really good and hands on. No entrance fee, just donation. Views of wetlands with birds but you will need a set of binoculars to see them. There may be more birds at a different time of the year
