Event description

Did you know up this 'water factory' can clean up to 400 million litres of stormwater each year?

The Oaklands Wetland is home to an extensive array of wildlife such as waders, cockatoos, ducks and many majestic river red gums.

Learn how this system cleans water as it moves slowly through a series of ponds, using natural processes to clean the water. It takes three days for the water to move through the wetland, where it can be injected into aquifers almost 100m below ground. More than 31 local parks and reserves, street trees and playing fields are irrigated with water from Oaklands Wetland.

Meet your guide David (volunteer) at the Oaklands Education Centre (on the western corner of the reserve bordering Oaklands Road).
