About the arts

Art in the wetlands is alive and on display through the native fauna and flora that abounds. The Hunter Wetlands Centre offers a unique experience for artists, photographers, musicians – anyone with a creative spirit – to immerse themselves in this peaceful landscape.

Visitors can observe the birds in action around the various ponds; photographers, both professional and happy snappers find many aspects of wildlife to interpret through the lens. We encourage photographers to upload their images of the Wetlands to Instagram #hunterwetlands (tag Hunter Wetlands Centre, birds, waterbirds, wetlands)

Since the visitor centre upgrade in 2019, the HWCA is now a venue for community and university art groups conducting outdoor workshops and exhibitions. Art groups are invited to contact the Volunteer Arts Coordinator to discuss holding workshops on-site.

Creative Art School Excursions at Hunter Wetlands Centre.

Primary and Secondary schools are encouraged to utilize the wetlands facilities for excursions.
