This year the Mount Arthur Trust has been celebrating its 50th anniversary and is encouraging local people to rediscover what the reserve has to offer. A photo competition has been running since June and is now drawing to a close, with some amazing and creative results!
It is easy to forget what beauty lies on Wellington's doorstep.
However entrants in the Mount Arthur Reserve Photo Competition have certainly been busy exploring the reserve, and being rewarded by spectacular views and finding its hidden gems.
An exhibition of all entries into the Photo Competition will be held at the Macquarie Theatre on Swift Street on Friday November 21 (10.30am to 4.30pm), Saturday November 22 (9am to 2pm) and Sunday November 23 (12 to 3pm).
This is a great chance for the local community to experience and appreciate the beauty of the reserve through the eyes of the photographers young and old. You might just be inspired to head out exploring!
There will also be an opportunity to vote in the People's Choice Award.
