We were literally 1 min too late to see the Dunnart - foiled yet again on another trip to the Creek. Seems a pity to close so early on a weekend - at least 4 other couples arrived not long after us.

Recently stopped in Julia creek, this information centre has more to offer than you would expect, lots of information on the town & its history, plus a look see at the tiny weeny dunnart, very cute the kids would love it, plus the floor experience.

Beautifully landscaped and designed info center - like an oasis in the outback. We stopped for a short break on our drive west, just in time to watch the Julia Creek Dunnart feeding and info talk - very interesting;
