Very good interpretive centre focused solely on the Mallefowl? Includes an art gallery, curio shop and cafe. Newish building, nice decor, clean toilets, helpful well informed staff.

Great little place to visit, learning about the Mallee Fowl and its habitat. Great café and good coffee also. This is a community resource centre as well. The ladies in the centre were very helpful and made us feel really welcome. Definitely recommend going there.
