The Biggest Bear Hunt in Newcastle!

Looking for a fun activity to do with your kids during the September/October School Holidays? Head over to the Hunter Wetlands Centre and bring the kids, their teddies and a picnic. Join the Biggest Bear Hunt in Newcastle where you'll explore the Wetlands, hunt for bears, do some Teddy Bear craft and even encounter some reptiles!

If you can't make it to the guided Bear Hunts, don't worry! The bears will be hanging out at the Wetlands the entire school holidays. Pick up a free map and clues at reception and go on your own Bear Hunt. Bring your teddy and a picnic and have a Teddy Bears Picnic!

If you're too grown-up for bear hunts, why not try the Threatened Species Walk? Check out the Bittern Bird Hide, Reed Marsh Board Walk, the Rainforest Shelter and more. Wear your walking shoes, bring a water bottle and some snacks and find out more about the Wetlands and biodiversity.
