“Always come back”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I live in Adelaide, but have often come to Wadlata with different groups of friends to show them through. The exhibits are hands on and very interesting, providing a great deal of history. The staff are very kind and helpful, and the Cafe is great. I will be coming back through shortly with International guests. Thank you Wadlata for keeping me entertained for a number of years.

“good tourist information and food”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Staff are friendly and well informed,large variety of souvenirs,great food and coffee.It is especially relaxing dining by the rock pool outside on a nice day.Haven't been through the interpretive centre for a while but it was very good the last time we went through.Think that the entry ticket allows you to come back for a few days now so you don't have to rush

“A great place”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This facility was very informative and well worth the money. A great way to see what is to come in the centre of Australia . The kids loved the big serpent.
