The Window on the Wetlands Centre is well on the way to becoming a tourist destination in Warren.

Stage 2, the relocation of the old church hall from the nearby Catholic Primary school was recently completed.

The church now sits beside the Tiger Bay wetland, to be re-born into a place to showcase the wonders of wetlands, while also promoting Macquarie River Trails and helping ‘incubate’ new business enterprises under that initiative.

The Window on the Wetlands Centre is now in its final stages to becoming fully operational. It will serve as an education and training facility, plus a community space that features cultural heritage displays and information.

It will also be the headquarters of RiverSmart’s Macquarie River Trails initiative (http://www.rivertrails.com.au), that has documented a range of ‘trails’ from Burrendong dam to the Macquarie Marshes, about 100 kms downstream of Warren. The plan is to offer guided tours to the Macquarie Marshes, as well as providing  permanent interpretive displays about the biodiversity of the river and Marshes.  There will also be interpretive information featuring RiverSmart’s ‘How to be a RiverSmart farmer’ guide, plus our ‘Water Cycle’ information that examines the expected impacts of climate change on this region.

In July, RiverSmart launched a 60-day fundraising campaign via crowd funding web site Indiegogo to help move forward with Stage 3 of the Centre in Warren. Stage 3 will see covered verandas added to the former church hall, along with interpretive boards and covered shelters,  to create a relaxing place for visitors and locals to take in the peaceful setting and also provide more wall space for interpretive boards.
