We stopped here as part of our Corroboree Wetland Cruise. Not sure why - was a complete waste of time. Exhibits were tacky - cardboard or plastic. But nice clean toilets. Cafe not open

So I admit that they cant make it rain, so the wetlands were basically dry lands.... it was basically like seeing a large farm... BUT, the displays were lack lustre and I didn't see any staff/guide actually approach a single person in our tour group....More

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.

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.
