Wonga Wetlands Visitor Education & Experience Centre
The Wonga Wetlands Visitor Education and Experience Centre is one of the four major projects we are delivering in partnership with the NSW Government under the Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund (RGETF). All projects improve our connection with the Murray River and will be ready for us to enjoy by mid 2021.
Wonga wetlands is located approximately five minutes from Albury's CBD. Set in an ecosystem of man-made lagoons and billabongs the 80 hectare site is a bird watchers paradise. There are two RGETF projects at Wonga. The second involves the construction of a further 12 kilometres of the Wagirra Trail around Wonga Wetlands which follows the Murray River.
The visitor education and Experience Centre project involves:
- The construction of a multi purpose building which will be used for a visitor and education centre
- Upgrade and expansion of the existing carpark
- Improved landscaping

The concept design of the building are in draft while site assessments are being undertaken to determine the exact of the building. An Aboriginal focus group are assisting with Archaeological Assessment of the proposed building site.
