Afterwards, look through the Nitmiluk Visitor Centre. The Display Centre and Heritage Museum feature large scale models illustrating the flora, fauna and rock formations of the park. If you would like to purchase your own memory of Nitmiluk, the centre has a range of souvenirs and artefacts handmade by the Jawoyn people.
