Great to spend an hour or two. Well presented indigenous cultural exhibition. Contained much of local history and artifacts. Well stocked shop for locally made items. Importantly now air conditioned.

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

We visited here on our way back to the Gagudju Lodge Cooinda as it's only 1km away. It was free of charge and although I wasn't too keen on going there I found it to be really interesting and I'm glad I went. I even learnt a few things myself. Only downfall was that the lady who came to lock... More

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.
