Edithvale-Seaford wetlands excursion

We’re lucky to have the internationally significant Edithvale-Seaford wetlands and the sustainable education centre in our backyard.

You can take a guided visit through our site and learn about the wetland’s importance to the environment.

Tailored, hands-on activities will teach groups more about:

  • birds and animals (including migratory species)
  • life cycles
  • wetlands and natural waterways
  • food chains

The centre is also open to the public every Sunday from 1.00pm to 5.00pm.
