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...

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

Hi Kristy H Thanks for the review, your certainly made the most of your time at Cooinda, I agree with you that the Warradjan Cultural Centre is a great insight into the indigenous way of life. The added bonus is that most of the people with in displays actually work or still have very close ties with Cooinda Lodge or... More

The centre is in the shape of turtle shell and has so much to read about local culture. It was very interesting and we even saw some artists at the end doing some painting outside. The shop is well stocked with the cheapest postcards we saw on the trip! Even better, entry is free.

Really informative and diverse displays give a sense of traditional Aboriginal culture in Kakadu. We spent at least 2 hours in the centre. The design of the building is great. The gift shop has an extensive range of books (including children's).

Great little centre, unfortunately the shop only has one person working in it and when a bus load like we were goes there they are not able to serve us all and miss out on sales as a consequence. Cultural sections was informative and interesting.

This was an enjoyable experience; the layout and the information boards were excellent. There was so much information time passed so quickly it was amazing. We actually took a break to absorb what we were seeing and enjoyed a very good coffee and cake as well. The set up inside is easy to follow and to hear the positive comments... More

This was an amazing experience. A walk through time with the original Australian people. There is a real feeling of reverence in this place, and i wish i could have spent more time there. There are loads of photos with references to read. I was spellbound.

We found it quite puzzling in the NT how little information there was available about indigenous Australian culture. We visited the Uluru visitors centre, the Bowali visitors centre in Kakadu, and the Warradjan centre and found the Warrandjan centre by far the most informative (and really the only one worth visiting). It was fascinating to read the stories from the... More
