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.

Published brochure says open all days except Tues and Friday. Sign at closed entry gate on Sunday says open all days except Sunday and Monday. Suggest you update your advertising material.

Mallee fowl are shy creatures by nature and much of their natural habitat across southern Australia has been destroyed by land-clearing, so you are unlikely to see one in the wild. This centre allows you to at least see them in captivity in a good-sized...More
