Warradjan centre

Must do for a very comprehensive insight into aboriginal culture and history. Leave yourself at least an hour to browse through.

This cultural centre is set in a beautifully designed building and the displays are excellent. It really puts the cultural context of local indigenous culture in perspective, and I found that I laterenjoyed looking with more knowledge at things I saw in Kakadu like rock art. There is also a large gift shop with everything from plastic tourist kitsch to... More

This is a must when visiting Kakadu. We loved the exhibits, but had difficulty reading them at time because of the lack of lighting. It was a shame that Kakadu overall is so poorly funded by the Australian Government as tourists were plentiful but rangers and exhibits clearly needed more funding.

This is a must-see place... More

We called in on our way out of Cooinda and very happy we did. A lot of information on display which was very interesting and well presented. Insight into both the NT and the local aboriginal history and culture. The shop had some interesting items too.

We enjoyed our visit here and would take another look now that I've seen more in Kakadu. I agree with other reviews, would have liked more interactive displays. Visually it was appealing, a bit too much reading for us especially with a 7 year old. Call in on your way through to build your understanding of the area and its... More
