Education, culture and information

The Window on the Wetlands (WOW) Centre is a community-run education, recreation and cultural centre and the gateway to the wetlands of the region, including Tiger Bay Wetlands next door and the Macquarie Marshes/Maliyanga ngurra, 120km north of Warren NSW. The Centre was established by RiverSmart in 2015. We also host Warren Shire Council’s “Warren and Macquarie Marshes Visitor Information Centre” located in the schoolhouse building.

How to see the Macquarie Marshes

You can see parts of the Marshes from the road if you travel along Gibson Way from either Quambone on the eastern side of the Marshes or the Carinda Road on the western side of the Marshes. You should always check road conditions before heading out, particularly following rain. There is accommodation available on Gibson Way at Willie Retreat (check availability in advance through Facebook Messenger). You can also have a Marshes experience from the elevated position of the Burrima Boardwalk, located on a private property on the western edge of the Northern Nature Reserve, accessed via the Carinda Road. Visitor access to Burrima is via online registration (link below). NOTE: THE BURRIMA IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO FLOODING
