RvTrips' review

28 Jul 2015

Warradjan Cultural Centre is open from 9 am to 5 pm daily and is located about one kilometre from Gagudju Cooinda Lodge and Yellow Water Billabong. We visited this beautiful cultural centre during our stay at Cooinda Lodge Caravan Park - what a great display of the Aboriginal history and life in Kakadu.

The informative signs will explain the local Aboriginal way of life and their understanding of the plants and animals of the region. They have six seasons and these are based around the time plants flower, geese lay eggs and the water lily growth - what a great understanding of nature (we found some signs a little hard to read due to the lighting).

The exhibit touches on hunting techniques by the clans over different seasons, the recent history of the park, blood lines and marriage rights (your skin type indicated who you could not marry), tribal elder stories and the effects of white settlement in the Northern Territory. You really should visit Warradjan Cultural Centre and read about this ancient culture - you will be surprised at how much you will learn.
 
Within the Warradjan Cultural Centre is a great gift shop and gallery of arts and crafts from Kakadu, Arnhem Land and the Katherine region - all displayed for sale. The majority of artworks are produced by local artists - each purchase will come with a tag giving you the name of the artist, their skin type and subject of that particular piece of work. My Pandanus Bowl (Green) was created by a lady of the Ngabangardi skin type (this was hand written on the card and I hope the spelling is correct). Some of the pieces of art will even come with the dream time story used for the basis of the painting as well as a history of the artist.

This is a beautiful building and worth a visit to get a real picture of Kakadu and the history of indigenous people in the area. There is plenty of car parking available outside the Centre, or you can take the short walk from Cooinda Lodge.
