The Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre is proud to present 'Wild Wanderings', a specially curated art exhibition and workshop series showcasing the beauty and fragility of Australia's migratory shorebirds. 

In this separately ticketed Nature Journalling Workshop, learn more about the distinguishing features of shorebirds, hints and techniques to capture their form, and advice on how to add artistic details to your journalling with watercolour.
