There is always something to do at the hunter wetlands centre
Hunter Wetlands Centre is a mecca for bird watchers and photographers. A total of 217 bird species have been recorded, ranging from waterbirds to raptors to woodland species.
Experience the magic of wetlands from the water as you explore tranquil creeks in a two or three-person canoe. Explore 2km of meandering canoe trails, including in Ironbark Creek that adjoins Hunter Wetlands National Park. You can take a picninc lunch and pull up and wander through Rainforest.
Kids love our Adventure Playground and dipnetting for aquatic life. Feed the Magpie Geese, have a BBQ lunch, enjoy a picnic, and go exploring on 4km of trails. Whatever your age, there is something to do at the Hunter Wetlands.

RESET & RENEWAL – Support your local wetlands
Hunter Wetland Centre Australia is Australia’s longest-running community owned wetlands centre. After 33 years of serving our community in wetlands conservation, environmental education and eco-tourism we are undertaking a major Reset & Renewal Strategy in 2018.
The new strategy aims to ensure the Wetlands continues to operate in the face of falling income and increasing expenses, and without ongoing operational funding from governments. We need your support to enable the Centre to be managed by our amazing volunteers whilst we talk to governments, businesses and our community to develop and implement the strategy.
Donate today to support your Wetlands.
We hope you like our new website, and that you will use the donation page to support your local charity.
