This cultural centre is well worth a stop for a cold drink and to see the exhibition. This is well organised, varied and high quality in presentation. You will lean a lot about many aspects of aboriginal culture and an hour is not long enough to do it justice probably 90-120 minutes depending on your concentration span.

The design & name of the cultural centre represents a Warradjan ( a pig nosed turtle) . It's a good place to stop if you have limited knowledge of Aboriginal culture in Kakadu. The centre sells Aboriginal artworks, Didgeridoos, books & a gift shop. Its open daily between 9am - 5pm. Warradjan is located just 1km from Cooinda Lodge.

Warradjan cultural centre is awesome. It's free, the rammed earth building is beautiful and the displays, which snake their way around, are meaningful. It is suitable for visitors with no knowledge of aboriginal culture right through to those with more knowledge wanting to know something specifically about the traditional owners of Kakadu. There is also a gift shop attached and... More

I liked that the history is told by local people from stories passed down from their elders and personal experiences of growing up in the area.

The cultural centre is not far by car from the Cooinda Lodge and is well worth visiting, giving a good insight into aboriginal way of life and their stewardship of the land.

When the eight year old reads every word, it's a good indication of how engaging the displays and information are at Warradjan. Great stories and explanations on the people of Kakadu and their connections to the land, told in local voice. We loved our time here and the insight it gave us. Another must do in Kakadu.

This Cultural Centre is by far the best we have been to and although looks reasonably small from the outside, is deceiving in that there is so much to see, read and absorb. The information is excellent and we very much enjoyed our visit.

Interesting and informative displays explaining the local aboriginal groups connections to the land and the local fauna and flora. These displays told in simple language the ways in which the early inhabitants managed their daily needs in response to the changing climatic conditions and their conservation of the local resources for their long term survival. The diagram of the picture... More

This cultural centre is definitely worth a look. They have very interesting displays, with detailed explanations about the history, culture and traditions of the aboriginal communities who have lived in Kakadu for tens of thousands of years. It is really well thought out and enjoyable. We came away having learned a lot. We spent about 1 hour there and read... More
