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.

This is a good place to set the scene for the environment in the area. It will help to understand the habitat and environment of the region and prepare you for what you might see. It may be a bit simplistic for adults but would be great for kids. There is also a toilet and a drinking fountain.

This place is a half way stop to jumping crocs, the displays are a bit dated but does give you the history and diversity of the area. Views from the deck are great and worth the heat.
