Bowali Visitor Centre

Home > Darwin > Free | Indoor
Published January 22nd 2018
Located at Kakadu Highway just 5km west of Jabiru, Bowali Visitor Centre has everything you need to plan your visit to Kakadu. The centre's long linear and unusual design was inspired by an Aboriginal Rock Shelter.

Bowali Visitor Centre has interpretive displays showing different views of the park's significance. There are some video presentations to help you gain a greater understanding of Kakadu's landscapes and you can approach one of the friendly staff for further information. There is a library and the centre also provides the latest information as to what roads and attractions are closed.

The Bowali Visitor Centre tells visitors about The Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Yellow Water and shares the vast and fascinating culture of the Bininj/Munnguy traditional owners. The Bowali Visitor Centre has some beautiful modern displays too, such as an old Toyota and interactive exhibits. My two year old liked the water fountain and turtles and fish swimming in the water running underneath the centre.
