Hunter Wetlands Centre - Review

It wasn’t until the 1980’s the Hunter Wetlands was a marshy dumping ground and later a part of it got converted into a football ground for the Hamilton Rugby Club. Today, the Wetlands Centre is regarded as one of the best preservation initiatives on a global level. Home to over 200 animals and birds, a visit to the Hunter Wetlands Centre is sure to take up a considerable chunk of your day.

Hunter Wetlands Centre, Newcastle Reviews

  • This is a lovely site. The wetlands are party worth a good picnic area and great play ground. The reptile and frog enclosures were a hit with the kids and we enjoyed the stroll aground the grounds. Very inexpensive too.

  • Lovely environment for peace and time out. Enjoy the birds and other wildlife and green spaces. The cafe serves delicious food and coffee. Had a pot pie with large serve of chips and huge salad. Very tasty, reasonably priced.

  • Great place for kids and parents to share learning about our wonderful wetlands. Also good to visit for special exhibitions and school excursions. The venue is perfect for functions, especially the outdoor wedding "chapel"! Large range of food options at the kiosk, no gluten-free choice other than chips. Licences.

  • Took a tour around the beautiful wetlands. Very peaceful sitting. Enjoyed a great morning tea at their Spoonbill Cafe. Surprised that more locals don't frequent this lovely setting.

  • Love this place very relaxing, a lot walking trails, observing nature as its best. Recommend it.
