Learn about the wetlands of the Adelaide River floodplain by stopping at Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre, sitting on top of Beatrice Hill, the highest point in the region. Visitors to the center receive an introduction to the ecosystems of the Northern Coastal Wetlands region through the use of interactive touch-screen displays highlighting the native wildlife and local history. An observation deck is available on the top floor, providing panoramic views of the surrounding environment, which is culturally significant to the local indigenous tribes. The center’s main building was designed and constructed to blend into the natural contours of the landscape, with adjacent picnic facilities and a large parking area.

  • Amazing place of interest. Visual and hands-on stories of the Wetlands. A must do 😊
  • Would like to come back in the wet season. We still got to see some wetlands and places we may not get to otherwise if covered by water. Very well organised displays and a top up of water is a welcome relief.
