The Nature Centre near the Village of Chaplin offers a wealth of information about the shore birds, the brine shrimp and mining industry as well as the area's significance as it connects to the hemispheric web of migration.

There are shuttle bus tours available which give visitors a taste of the area by providing information not only on the shorebirds but also on conservation, local industry and history and the agricultural practices in the region.
