great, educational and enlightening. We arrived a little late, a little over an hour before the Visitor Centre closed. Staff at the centre were very pleasant and helpful and we quite surprised when we were offered a free return ticket.

Hi John thanks for your great review, glad you enjoyed your visit. People are often surprised with the free pass out we offer but as there is so much to see we understand it is not always possible to finish the display in one visit.

Wadlata has everything a traveller needs. Friendly staff, good food & coffee, clean amenities, large vehicle parking, and a wealth of information along with a large range of souvenirs. It’s also a popular lunch stop for the locals. Thanks very much

Need to allow plenty of time - up to 3 hours- to fully view and absorb the wonderful displays and information. Great Café.
Staff extremely helpful, great customer service

Make sure you visit the Wadlata Outback Centre in Port Augusta and take the walk around town with Lisa. Very good and informative.

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.
