Wetland Experience

Wetland Experience

Please note: This trail is currently only available as a self-guided trail. It will be available as an educator-led trail again from 1 May 2023. This trail is more suited to the rainier months of the year.

A visit to the First Creek Wetland at Adelaide Botanic Garden provides students with a unique first-hand experience of this increasingly important habitat type.

The wetland is designed specifically to assist students with learning how wetlands can be used to filter and recycle water while at the same time improve the natural urban environment.

Through this experience students will investigate water harvesting, filtering and storage processes and how wetlands serve as a habitat.
