I came here twice, once by myself and once with friends. I did the wetlands tour when I came by myself and it was alright. It was a bit smaller than I expected but otherwise it was fine. I guess it's more tailored towards a younger crowd and I could see the kids on the tour really enjoying themselves while... More

We stopped in October so perhaps it might have been better in the summer. What they have done with a former waste site is lovely, but I had expected to see more wildlife.

We didnt really know what to expect,but it was different. Younger kids may not appreciate the history lesson of the area,but there's a nice little boat trip afterwards to keep them happy. It's not that big,but it is unique. Restaurant is nice and the centre isnt that expensive to visit. Worth a look.

I did not go the Centre just did the walk through the wetlands. It is beautiful and what I liked most, is that a lot of locals appear to use it. Great place to have in front of your doorstep.

This was an excellent center for a family with kids. Plenty to do on the water. Wildlife all around. The restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced. The kids loved it and can’t wait to go back again next year.

August is not the best time of the year to visit the wet lands due to the lack of wild life earlier or later in the year would be much better
