At Bowali visitors are invited to journey through Kakadu’s habitats as the South Alligator River meanders through the landscape from source to sea. Bowali Visitor Centre presents two views of Kakadu, the Gukburleri (Aboriginal) and Guhbele (non-Aboriginal) views. It is hoped that visitors will leave the display understanding more about the park and realising that we all have a responsibility to look after this country.
Bowali lies within the Mirrar Gun-djeihmi clan estate and is named after the creek which drains the area. Bowali (Bor-warl-ee) is a Gun-djeihmi name for the local area and creek on land owned by the Mirrar clan. The building's design was inspired by an Aboriginal rock shelter.
Information staff are available to help you plan your Kakadu visit. Every half hour, there is an audio-visual presentation, giving different perspectives on Kakadu. The habitat display and library have detailed information about Kakadu and how much there is to see and do. Refreshments are available from the Anmak An-me Cafe.
Bowali Visitor Centre is open from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm daily. The Anmak An-me Café is open 9am to 5pm daily.
