Internationally celebrated World Wetlands Day on 2 February is a wonderful opportunity to discover the diverse wetlands at Sydney Olympic Park.
One fun way to celebrate is to enter the national photography competition for all ages called Wetlands in Focus run by WetlandCare Australia and Conservation Volunteers Australia.
The Sydney Olympic Park wetlands provide a wonderful location for photography, where you can snap your favourite wetland flora, fauna or landscape. Please remember you must stick to pathways and walkways so you do not damage our natural environment. Find out more about entering the competition and prizes.
To inspire you, we thought we would share some of our favourite pics…
