Please join us for Dandjoo Gabi Wonga (meeting place of the waterways story), a community celebration of World Wetlands Day and the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the international Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. Our estuary and surrounding lakes are recognised as internationally important under the Convention due to their uniqueness, biological diversity and significance as overwintering grounds for migratory birds.
Celebrate World Wetlands Day 2021 in style with art, music, food and great company. Hear from and mingle with a fabulous range of people caring for and making a living from our wonderful wetlands.
