Take easy walking trails through three desert botanical habitats, explore a living culture with Aboriginal guides, witness free-flying birds of prey in the nature theatre, see rare and endangered animals in the spectacular nocturnal house, and take a cinematic journey through 4½ billion years of desert creation.
