Never before have I read every signboard in a museum but I did in the cultural centre. Through visual displays the centre tells the stories of the indigenous of the area in their own words.

We (2 adult and 2 young kids) all enjoyed wandering through the display and learning so much about the region and its people. Definitely recommend spending an hour here as part of your Kakadu experience.

We spent some time at this centre, learning about the local wildlife and Aboriginal culture. There was a great gift shop with plenty or genuine Aboriginal art works for sale. When you buy here, you're getting the real thing.

A visit to Warradjan Cultural Centre was a really enjoyable experience and a great way to learn about the region and its people past and present. As we continued our Kakadu holiday we found ourselves remembering information from the wonderful displays at Warradjan so we were much better informed and saw many places in a new light.

It has A/C and is FREE. From there it just gets better. Great displays set-up in a well excuted walk around museum. Enough information without too much information - you can read it all without nodding off. Also a good store to buy items from the park. Prices are reasonable for the items and quality. Note - no pictures allowed.

You need some background information to see the world through aboriginal eyes and this centre provides it. Although seemingly primitive, Aboriginal society is very complicated with many social rules which are completely alien to us. In some ways, they live in a different world even a different planet.

The centre is educational and informative and the displays very well laid out. Much more worthwhile visiting than the Kakadu Visitors Centre, which is not that interesting at all. Culture and history of the indigenous people well presented. It would, however, have been enjoyable to have some more direct interaction with the traditional owners. Seeing well presented displays and detailed... More
