This July School Holidays over 5000 people joined us for evolving wetlands.

A big thank you to everyone who attended and all of our volunteers for making this event possible.

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.

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors:
