until 10 july

Centered on the work of nationally acclaimed

ceramicist, Jenny Orchard, and including work by

five local artists, Zookini is the 2011 Xstrata

Children’s Exhibition at Perc Tucker Regional


One of the local artists involved, Robert

transports visitors to an underwater landscape

Children are encouraged to interact during the

projection with the shadows they create.

fruition thanks to the Together Townsville

partnership between council and Origin Energy.

The agreement with Origin Energy will help fund

the low-impact boardwalk, interpretive signage

and outdoor education deck.

The 75ha Rowes Bay Wetlands reserve is one of

as a central hub for coastal environmental

education in the region, as well as give the

community a ‘hands-on’ experience in learning

The Rowes Bay Wetlands is open to the public.
