This is a very well thought out and educational facility if you have the time and patience to take it all in. It guides you through every type of landscape and microclimate in the outback, and tells you all about the animals and plants, as well as some history of how man interacted with them.
There are numerous enclosed areas where you can see a variety of bird species close up, and a rather wonderful nocturnal pavilion where you can see the various snakes, lizards and marsupials that come out only at night.
If I have any criticism of this place it's that there's almost too much here. We spent about an hour and a half late in the afternoon, after which my 9-year old was just about burned out with all the intense fact-finding and creature-viewing: if you go with small kids it might be best to be selective and decide at the start which are the 3 or 4 things you want to see most, and stick to those.
