For a relaxing and educational day out or just for lunch, visit the Hunter Wetlands Centre
412 Sandgate Rd, SHORTLAND, Newcastle, NSW, Australia
A great place to take the kids with a childrens 'Discovery Playground' featuring many of the 250 fauna and flora that inhabit the wetlands. The species are either carved into the wooden poles or painted on tiles.
A new Education Centre was completed in early 2011 and will be a place for school and other community groups to engage in learning about wetland environments.
Hunter Wetland Centre is Australia's only dedicated Wetland Centre and is managed by the community as a not for profit organisation. The Hunter wetlands are a place for education, conservation and nature based tourism. The wetlands are now recognised as a Ramsar Wetland
of international significance.
