Warradjan and Bowali

Warradjan Cultural Centre, Kakadu.

Warradjan Cultural Centre, Kakadu.

There are two visitor centres within Kakadu, Bowali visitor centre and our favourite Warradjan cultural centre.  Warradjan was developed by aboriginal traditional owners the building itself is in the shape of the Warradjan, the pig nosed turtle.  Inside is full of artifacts that display stories and insights that the traditional owners wish to share with it’s visitors.  Cameras are off limits in here so you must experience it for yourself, so why don’t you?

We loved it so much we visited it twice, the people here are beautiful, friendly and very welcoming.  Free teaching activities are held on a weekly basis and is a great opportunity to have some hands learning experience with some of the Bininj.  It is worthy of mention here we also felt it was less commercial then others we have encountered.  This meant from our very tight point of view it was so worthwhile and urge all to come and visit Warradjan when in Kakadu.

With some interactive displays and a mini theatre the Bowali visitor centre is very educational and seriously relaxing.  We spent a good amount of time in the centres library which has a solid range of books to enjoy in air-conditioned comfort, the kids especially had a ball here.
