The $1.92 million building, opened in time for this year’s tourist season, has been designed to fit in with the natural surroundings of Purnululu National Park and to educate visitors about the Traditional Owners of the land, the Jaru and Gija people and their culture.

The centre, which received State and Federal funding, has large east facing windows framing the view of the striking ancient rock formations of the Bungle Bungle range.

Purnululu National Park has been World Heritage Listed since July 2003 for its outstanding natural heritage values.

The new visitor centre will open daily from 8am to 4pm and close during the wet season.
