It's well worth a stop while traveling on the Arnhem Highway, it's free and provides some great views over the flood lands. Allowing 15-20 minutes is more than enough time. Provides a nice birds eye view and lends perspective to wetlands of the Top End.

`The exhibits are a bit amateur and not very informative. On the other hand, it's donation based. Not really much worth a visit unless you have time you don;t know what to do with and happen to be driving right past.

This was a quick stop on a tour to Litchfield. We touched ants bums on our tongues, they had a limey zing. We also saw a brolga as we were driving in. Displays were a bit tired looking but the viewing area was very good.

A good spot to stop and take in the views. Lots of interactive information inside the centre. Its quite a long walk from the car park to the centre. Nice picnic spot adjacent to the car park.

The Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre provides a comprehensive and interactive overview of the Wetlands area. The displays are well set out and allow interaction for visitors of all ages. The view over the wetlands from the top viewing area is wonderful. A great place to visit and combine with a visit to Spectacular Jumping Crocs.
