The Wetlands Environmental Education Centre is located at Hunter Wetlands Centre, Australia, a 45ha eco-park located west of Newcastle in the Hunter Region of NSW. It includes natural, rehabilitated and artificial wetlands surrounded by landscaped gardens attracting many wetland animals, including over 200 bird species throughout the year. The Visitors' Centre compliments the site by introducing visitors to wetlands through displays, all weather tracks, playground equipment and  cafe facilities.

The school education program is offered through a purpose built centre, which includes admin spaces, a classroom, wet lab and theatre and caters for day visits from students at all levels of schooling and reflects the NSW DET Environmental Education Policy for Schools requirements.
