Too many shuttles, directions, and off hand staff to make the WAC enjoyable. There are shuttles between the Visitor Centre, the village and resorts, shuttles to the various walks and remote Visitor Centres and it's all far too complicated. The videos 1-6 and the movies...More

It was a good point to learn about all of the trails and tours of the park. You start off to many of the major trails.

This is the place to go when getting on a bus that goes in the park. The staff is very helpful. The system follows the schedule. It is very organized and the lines move fast enough.

The center is very close to the park entrance. It's where you pick up your bus tickets and hop on your bus to get more into the park. There's plenty of parking. Inside there are bathrooms, water filling stations, gift shop, food for sale, etc.
