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 😊
