Window on the Wetlands Visitors Centre is perched on Beatrice Hill, one of the highest points on the Adelaide River floodplain. The Centre provides an introduction to the northern coastal wetlands. Details of places to visit, tours, accommondation are available from Parks and Wildlife Commission staff.
There are also interactive displays about the ecological processes that occur in the wetlands, seasonal changes and the problems of feral animals and weeds. Plus touchscreen computers help you find detailed information on wildlife and on local Aboriginal and European history. These are easily accessible for children and ideal for picking up easy to remember local knowledge.
From the top floor of the Centre you can enjoy superb views across the floodplains, especially during the early morning or late afternoon. In the wet season you can see the flooded wetlands and if you are lucky, spectacular lightning storms.
