The museum was interesting as it was interactive, and utilised both the walls and floor for the displays. However, the theatre was closed, and so was the drinks kiosk. There was a television in the souvenir shop showing a video of interviews with the traditional land owners on bush food.

We went here yesterday and after 2 weeks of beautiful water falls and swimming areas, it was a nice change to be able to walk around and read all the info about food gathering and the beliefs and culture if the aborigine. It's well set up. I enjoyed it.

This place is part history centre and part gift shop (what's missing is an eatery). As for the history it must be the best display in all of Kakadu covering history, aboriginal life including the dream time and the invasion of non indigenous people into the area. The way it's all laid out makes it extremely informative. The gift shop... More

We approached the Centre from our Hotel which was 1 km away. Just a dirt track with no signs whatsoever so a poor start. The Centre itself needs an upgrade. The Theatre was closed due to the 18 yo Projector needing replacement. So the alternative was a TV in the gift area showing a recycling tape. I feel unhappy that... More

Don't miss this centre whilst at Kakadu. It has been developed by the local people who have a different way at looking at their environment. The craft centre has a range o locally produced paintings and basket work and you can watch some o the artists at work

Nice centre and nice drive to get here. The centre is modern with great info, the gift shop was well priced and had some good stuff. I picked up an aboriginal designed bread holder for just under $20. The lady at the counter was really helpful and very happy. Considering this is an aboriginal Centre, it was lovely to chat...

Dear LynKen Thank you for taking the time to post your 5 start review, I will pass on your comments to Lou Webster who served you that day.

This exhibition was well worth the visit, and not just because it is air conditioned! There was lots of really interesting information about the local aboriginal people and their culture. I enjoyed reading the comments from the local people themselves. It seemed that the local people had a lot to do with the setting up of the exhibition which made... More
