If you are travelling with kids you must stop at the Wadlata Museum. What a great place and so informative about life in the outback. Just loved it, we lost track of time and ended up spending at least 2 hours here.

A very interesting visit to the centre which has lots of audio visuals and static displays. You get best value from at least 2hrs+ or you will have to miss a lot out. Highly recommend.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this Outback Centre.
The information provided is well presented in various forms. It isa collection of photographs, narrations and short films about evolution, aboriginal dream time and historical photos and films.
