Get there when this place opens. Do this to give youself time to visit all the areas. The Research Centre itself deserves half a day. The bonus is the Aviation buildings near the Cemetery. The cemetery should be visited in conjunction with everything else.

For a little town in the middle of the NT, this resident art collection is seriously impressive. Definitely worth stopping for a look.

We did a quick trip through the Beanie Festival. The parking was plentiful and shady. The exhibit space was spacious and comfortable, clean and modern.

The precinct is worth visiting and the exhibitions are interesting if a little small; it doesn't take more than a couple if hours to see it all.

Beanie Festival time. Precinct in full use. Wonderful venues and art spaces , facilities and shop. One has to be bold and wander through the tourist areas to find information, ranger, exhibits, and cafe's etc.

You just can’t help yourself. You will laugh your head off when you see all these funny beanies. The festival is all... More

One entry fee gives access to Museum, Art Gallery and Aviation Hangers. We did not have time for Aviation museum this time, on our bucket list... However, we really enjoyed and learnt more about Australian and particularly, central Australia. Extremely well presented diorama's, exhibits and video ( and lady on duty, Judy, was exceptionally helpful) .. Then, onto Art Gallery... More

needs some cleaning up to be honest. It is not inspiring at all and could be so much more. Just a little extra work would do it
