HUNTER WETLAND CENTRE RENOVATION OPENS

There’s now much more to see at the Hunter Wetlands, with the visitor’s centre boasting an art gallery.

Officially opened this afternoon, the upgrade is the first stage of a complete overhaul of the centre.

“Gradually we’ll work through upgrading our conference areas, our meeting spaces. We’ve got an education theaterette downstairs, and a cafe space.”

Newcastle’s Ruth Samuels is the first artist showcased in the space.
