Some Bunny’s egg-cited about Easter at Hunter Wetlands Centre


If you’ve never been to the Hunter Wetlands Centre, then you should, for many reasons. 

Not only is this 45-hectare, world-recognised site home to more than 200 bird species, a thriving ecosystem, and 40,000 visitors each year, but it’s also been listed as one of the tops spots for Easter Bunny sightings in the Hunter region.

And, to celebrate this, the self-funded, community-owned, not-for-profit environmental conservation group is hosting an Easter Fun Day on Saturday 30 March, hoping the fluffy bunny will make an appearance.

From 9.30am to 1pm, the venue will become home to several family-friendly activities, including Easter craft, a jumping castle, face painting, dip-netting and reptile encounters. 

We have it on good authority that the Easter Bunny will be hoppy to pose for photos with the kids too. 

Get along to the Hunter Wetlands Centre’s Easter Fun Day where you never know what you might find.

Families are also encouraged to follow the trails through the wetlands and explore what makes this such a special place. 

“We’re very excited to host our Easter Fun Day, we think this will be our biggest and best yet,” said Hunter Wetlands Centre general manager James Wilson. 

“Our team has put together a wide range of activities that the kids are going to love, we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone on the day and getting families out into nature to enjoy the activities. 

“Stay for lunch and enjoy a sausage sizzle, eat at the Wetlands Café or bring a picnic.  

“The main activities finish at 1pm but you can stay till 4pm and explore the wetlands.” 

Tickets are available online for $9.50 and the reptile encounter is an additional $5.  

Tickets to the annual Easter Fun Day notoriously sell out fast, so the community is encouraged to book early.
