I visited recently and was surprised at the price of the place. I paid over $20 for an adult ticket. Some time ago when the place was new it would have been great. Sadly it is outdated and overpriced. The place does need an overhaul and some investment of money. I wouldn’t return.

Oh that's disappointing Damien, as I am sorry our center did not meet your expectations. I guess our $1 million makeover 10 years ago did not make an impression, albeit the only display which is not current is the Leigh Creek Coal Fields, albeit it is certainly still well used by everyone. It's still great to get feedback of any description but it would be good to know what you believe is outdated. Thanks for taking the time to letting us know. Kind regards Pauline

Having been to Port Augusta many times before we thought we dad done it all but somehow we had missed this place. We rectified it on this trip. To get the most out of this place need to allow couple of hours and take your time. Cant comment on coffe shop as didnt try it but maybe next time.

Great place to visit. Suggest you set aside 2 to 3 hours if you take on the full experience, interacting with all the exhibits. Cafe OK but no more than that. Good range of books and tourist items.

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.
