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)

In 2018 the HWCA will be the 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 Arts at the Hunter Wetlands Centre
In October we will be partnering with Timeless Textiles to present a sculptural exhibition Deeper Voice of Textiles at the Wetlands.
Each school holiday provides opportunities for children to explore their creativity through a series of arts workshops based on the wetlands environment.
