This is quite a sizable building for what it contains, which isn't much. We had morning tea there which was OK and a comfort stop. I cant think of one memorable thing to say about this centre although it does have a really nicer view.

We stopped in during a group tour - lots of buses and lots of people. Good capacity in dining room with surprising selection of food. Information displays very good - landscape and ecology overview of area. Some ethnic history too. Worth visiting.

This is essentially the main visitor center for the national park. Park information is available, toilets, a café, and a small gift shop. We found the bilingual exhibits on local human and natural history to be well done. The place can easily get overwhelmed when...More
