MICK BROWN PHOTOGRAPHY – ‘INSIDER’S VIEW’ EXHIBITION
29 April – 27 May
Mick has been a volunteer at the Hunter Wetlands Centre , as part of the Maintenance Crew, since 2014. With his mining background, Mick’s fitter and machinist skills help keep the Wetlands machinery on the go.
Mick has used his 10 year interest in photography to capture many images of the Wetlands landscape and its wildlife inhabitants.
His exhibition, ‘Insider’s View’, portrays the resident birds in action, as they go about their daily rituals.

Magpie Geese Feeding
Come along and watch (and listen to) the free for all at feeding time.
Other pond birds like the Pacific Black Duck, Eurasian Coots and Purple Swamp Hens join in too.
The number of birds being fed varies with the seasons.
They are fed a mixture of grains – Sorghum, layer pellets and wheat.
They are never fed bread as it is like junk food to birds.
Reptile Encounters are also held during school holidays – check on the website or ask Reception for dates and times.
Preschools, schools, OOSH groups, nursing homes and other groups can include a Reptile Encounter in their visit to the Wetlands or book a Wetlands on Wheels visit where we bring the reptiles to you. There is a fee for these services.

A Reptile Encounter can also be included in a Birthday Party Booking.
