Good place to stop and get information about the places to visit and get maps for the walks. The rangers are very informative and helpful and there is a little museum/display to visit whilst you are there.

A must see if you are visiting Jabiru. An extremely informative and well designed centre that gives a detailed insight into the aboriginal culture of the surrounding area. Thank you to the custodians of the area for helping us understand their fascinating culture and history....More

Helpful staff with road conditions and advice on what to do. Although interesting exhibition/museum. We were also lucky to see a cooking demonstration by the rangers, where buffalo and beef were cooked in the ground. Had lovely hot meat rolls.

Not sure how long this place has been open, but it needs some TLC if it's going to continue to attract new visitors. Several displays were either broken or fenced off. A large side building was fenced off with big do not enter signs warning...More
