The Department of Environment, Parks and Water Security (DEPWS) is seeking expressions of interest from interested commercial operators to manage the 18.5 hectare site, Window on the Wetlands.
Located along the Arnhem highway, 70km East of Darwin, on Ludawei (Beatrice Hill) the site provides majestic views of the Adelaide River floodplain and is conveniently located for visitors travelling to Arnhem Land, Jumping Crocodile Cruises or Kakadu.
The Windows on the Wetlands building, constructed to represent the form of a dancing brolga, includes a two level visitor centre complete with amenities, café, and interactive display of the area with the top level viewing deck providing an uninterrupted 270 degree view of the wetlands.
The Limilngan-Wulna people maintain connection with Ludawei and commerical opportunities should recognise and respect the cultural significance of the site and the area.
There are more than 200,000 visitors annually to Kakadu, Mary River, Djukbinj National Parks and to Arnhem Land or beyond.
The Expression of Interest is open from today, 7 April 2021 and closes on Wednesday 5 May 2021.
