What is there to do?

Window on the Wetlands Visitors Centre is perched on Beatrice Hill, one of the highest points on the Adelaide River floodplain. So just imagine the views!

The Centre provides an introduction to the northern coastal wetlands, and is a great place to start your outdoor adventure. Kids can learn about the environment around them, and there are staff to answer any questions you may have!

The Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre also feature interactive displays about the ecological processes that occur in the wetlands, seasonal changes and the problems of feral animals and weeds. 

Kids will love using the touchscreen computers to help them 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.

If you're continuing on to other National Parks, it's also a great stop to learn all about the environment you are about to see!

So that camera ready because there are some stunning views coming your way!

Need a little extra help?

Parking - there is quite a steep walk from the car park to the entrance of the Visitor Centre. However, a drop-off area is provided at the entrance for less able passengers.
