Great to find out more about the traditional land owners of the land. We walked over from Cooinda. 2km return. Had to ask for directions to get started as the track entrance is covered by a row of trees. Or maybe we just did a boy look.

It's a easy walk from the Cultural Centre to two sets of rock art. The third set is a bit of a climb but several in our group were pleased they made the effort. Unfortunately there was no-one there to tell us the significance of the art work, which was a pity. Inside the museum was cool and well organised.... More

This museum has quite a bit of information about the local aboriginal groups. You have to take your time to digest it all and read the numerous plaques with interesting information. There is also a good-size shop that sells misc items including a large selection of books about the aboriginal culture and art work from local aboriginal artists. An interesting... More

Must do for a very comprehensive insight into aboriginal culture and history. Leave yourself at least an hour to browse through.

This cultural centre is set in a beautifully designed building and the displays are excellent. It really puts the cultural context of local indigenous culture in perspective, and I found that I laterenjoyed looking with more knowledge at things I saw in Kakadu like rock art. There is also a large gift shop with everything from plastic tourist kitsch to... More

This is a must when visiting Kakadu. We loved the exhibits, but had difficulty reading them at time because of the lack of lighting. It was a shame that Kakadu overall is so poorly funded by the Australian Government as tourists were plentiful but rangers and exhibits clearly needed more funding.

We paid a quick visit to the Warradjan Cultural Centre in Kakadu National Park on our way up to Jabiru. It was great to see and learn more about the local aboriginal tribes, their history (the good and the bad) and about the relevance of sites in Kakadu in their folklore/spiritology if that’s a word(?) This is a must-see place... More

We called in on our way out of Cooinda and very happy we did. A lot of information on display which was very interesting and well presented. Insight into both the NT and the local aboriginal history and culture. The shop had some interesting items too.
