After camping at Malabanjbanjdju Camping Area (accommodation tips), we had only a short drive to the main information centre for Kakadu National Park, the Bowali Visitor Centre. As might be expected, this is a substantial facility. The award winning building blends comfortably into its tropical setting and, as might be hoped, the standard of the displays is excellent, being both informative and interesting. The display centre also houses a library and there are video showings, if your schedule permits sufficient time.
The displays cover Aboriginal culture, and the history, geography and wildlife of the area. There also is a shop (see shopping tips) and coffee and snacks are available. You would be doing yourself a considerable dis-service if you did not make visiting Bowali one of your first priorities when you visit Kakadu. This also is where you can arrange any camping permits or make any other necessary arrangements.
Entry to the Bowali Visitor Centre is free. It is open daily from 0800 to 1700.
Directions: 5km from Jabiru township, and well signposted.
