Bowali Visitor Centre

Before you start exploring Kakadu National Park, get familiarised by exploring the Bowali Visitor Centre.

It's a great first-stop on your Kakadu adventure. Our staff are on hand to answer questions and help plan your walks and activities.

Spend an hour at the interpretive centre where you can watch a 25 minute video presentation to help you gain a greater understanding of Kakadu's landscape and moods. Videos are shown on the half hour giving different perspectives on Kakadu and its international significance.

There is a walk-through display where you’ll learn about the plants, animals and landscapes you’ll see in the park. The habitat based display and library gives detailed information about the park and how much there is to see and do. It's air-conditioned, so a great spot to cool off and relax with a book.

You’ll find the Anmak An-me Café and Marrawuddi Gallery here. Take a look at Marrawuddi Gallery for Aboriginal arts, crafts, books and gifts, then enjoy a refreshment at the cafe. There’s also a recharging station in Bowali.

A park pass is required to enter Kakadu National Park. Save time on your holiday and purchase your Kakadu park pass online before you leave.
