The historic Nitmiluk Visitor Centre is going to be refurbished!


What is happening to the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre and Why?

Our beautiful Visitor Centre is over 20 years old and due for a refit.

An innovative redesign of the interior along with landscaping of building surrounds will bring the space into the 21st century, improving visitor experience!

Developments include new and exciting delivery of information throughout the center, with a new Traditional Custodians of the Land “Welcome to Country” at the building’s entrance and a facelift to the existing interpretive and information space.

Other developments include a new commercial kitchen and improved, extended seating areas where visitors can rest, relax and enjoy a cool drink or a meal prepared by our award winning Kitchen.

Outside the building will be landscaped, enabling improved views of the escarpment from a new alfresco dining space, a nature-based waterplay area where visitors can safely cool off year-round, and new pathways with signage for improved access.


How long will redevelopment of the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre take?

The redevelopment project is scheduled between January and at this stage May 2019. We all know that sometimes works might take longer than expected, however rest assured that the Visitor Centre will be officially reopened in early September 2019.

We invite you to stay tuned on our website and social media pages for further updates. We are looking forward to sharing our newly developed spaces!


Where can I book boat cruise tickets while the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre redevelopment occurs? What happens if I get hungry or if I need a drink?

Nitmiluk’s Reservations Team and Nitmiluk Café are located in the temporary buildings, located on the lawns in front of the Visitor Centre for the duration of the redevelopment project.

During the refurbishment works, Nitmiluk will operate as usual and the same services will be offered.


Where do I go to get my Jatbula Trail induction while the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre redevelopment occurs?

As Lisa Mumbin - Chairperson of Nitmiluk Tours- highlights, the Jawoyn people (Traditional Owners of the Land and 100% owners of Nitmiluk) and the Northern Territory Government have been joint-managing the Nitmiluk National Park since it was first handed back to traditional owners almost 30 years ago. 

Under the motto of ‘sharing our country’, the Jawoyn people established Nitmiluk to manage tourism and offer an array of accommodation and touring experiences.

We are looking forward to keep sharing Nitmiluk National Park with you for many years to come!
