Urban Wetland

Urban Wetland

An outdoor classroom and entertainment venue that promotes conservation and education; the Urban Wetland is freshwater fun for children to explore.

The wetland is home to plant and animal species once common throughout Perth including native fish, frogs, and invertebrates.

Before European settlement the Perth CBD was dotted with freshwater wetlands, and this urban wetland provides the perfect learning platform for those looking to learn about an often fragile ecosystem.

It also has a stage which makes it ideal for events and steps which offer passers-by seating should they want to stop and reflect for a moment.

The Urban Wetland monitors water quality in a partnership program run with the WA Museum and is a feature of the Perth Cultural Centre’s sustainable approach to landscaping and design.
