Join us this July School Holidays

Sat 7th July -> Sat 21st July

Hunter Wetlands Centre brings the past to life from July 7th through to July 21st with Evolving Wetlands, an interactive exhibition showcasing a unique collection of dinosaur fossils and replicas with a focus on the wetlands environment.

The exhibition features specially made dinosaur casts from the collection of local palaeontology expert Michael Dawson. For two decades, Dawson has been collecting museum-quality pieces moulded from real dinosaur skeletons around the globe.

In addition to touring the exhibition, kids of all ages can have a go at some DinoCraft or set off for a game of Dino Spy, finding as many dinosaurs as they can. Visitors can take a guided tour of the wetlands, meet the resident reptiles during a live demonstration, and enjoy a special dinosaur-themed meal at the wetlands café.
