Hunter Wetlands Centre gets $20,000 makeover

Wetlands Conference Centre

Hunter Wetlands Centre is pleased to unveil a new-look conference space, thanks to a $20,000 joint funding donation from Glencore Coal and Port Waratah Coal Services. This unveiling is particularly special as it coincides with the Centre’s 40th anniversary, marking four decades of dedication to conservation, education, and community engagement.

The upgrades to the existing conference space make Hunter Wetlands Centre a go-to conference and meeting destination for local community groups, corporate businesses, and government organisations. Bookings are available now.

With the now completed renovations, the conference space boasts a contemporary refreshed interior, new wiring, upgraded conferencing equipment and an 85-inch presentation system.

Hunter Wetlands Centre General Manager, James Wilson, said he was excited to reveal the renovations and invite the corporate and community groups of Newcastle to make use of the space.

“The new-look space will have a truly positive impact across all aspects of the Centre,” James said.

“Not only will the renovated space provide our volunteers with a professional training space, but also greatly improve the meeting facilities for our community partners.”

“By providing a modern, well-equipped space we can expand our offerings to corporate and government organisations. The financial sustainability this provides our Centre will help us keep entry costs low and support the conservation and restoration of the Wetlands.”

“Funding donations for projects such as this, help us strengthen our connection with our community, and increase the number of people that can engage with, learn about, and enjoy our beautiful Wetlands.”

The Hunter Wetlands Centre expects that with the completion of the renovation works, upwards of 22,000 people will enjoy the benefits of the upgraded conference space.
