Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
An access point to the wildlife and natural landscape of the Northern coastal wetlands, this area is significant to the Aboriginal Limilngan-Wulna people. The Window on the Wetlands Visitor Center grants visitors the historical and cultural insight they’ll need to fully experience it. There are dozens of displays detailing the unique ecology of the Northern Territory wetlands, as well as European and Aboriginal history. Seasonal changes are the key to understanding the wetlands, as they are both wet and dry at different points in the year and the wildlife has to adapt. Exhibits are educational and highly interactive.
Parks and Wildlife staff here can also assist with where to visit and what you’re likely to see. From the center you can get an overview of the Adelaide River plains and wetlands. You can see for miles, particularly with the use of binoculars.
Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre sits high up on Beatrice Hill (also known as Ludawei.) It accessible from Darwin on the Stuart and Arnhem Highways, about a 60 kilometer drive. Once you arrive, there is a parking lot (though the climb to the visitor’s center is steep!) Entry is free and the Visitor’s Center is open daily from 8 am to 5:30 pm.
Address: Beatrice Hill, Arnhem Highway, Humpty Doo NT 0836, Australia
