Hong Kong Wetland Park is a conservation area spanning over 10,000 sq m of wetlands and a 60-hectare reserve park with re-created habitats for wildlife. This natural park attracts those interested in discovering a greener side of the city-rich island.
You can spot various species of birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals, thanks to the park’s many birdwatch towers, hides, and walkways across streams and mangroves. Interactive tools are on hand at the Discovery Centre, which also includes themed galleries, a theatre, and a swamp-style indoor play area for children.

Hong Kong Wetland Park Highlights
Hong Kong Wetland Park offers an opportunity to experience Hong Kong’s wetland ecosystem while also drawing attention to the importance of conservation. There are plenty of educational messages on display throughout the park, along with a resource centre outlining the significance of the wetlands for preservation and biodiversity.
One of Wetland Park’s most famous inhabitants is Pui Pui, who resides in a 72-sq-m enclosure with her own pool and basking areas. Pui Pui is a saltwater crocodile who was found in 2003 despite Hong Kong not being a natural habitat for these animals. She quickly became a celebrity, with the centre creating a habitat that mirrors her own natural environment.
The park also has around 235 bird species, 150 butterfly species, 9 species of amphibians, 23 different types of reptiles, and 11 kinds of mammals. Summer is a great time to see butterflies and dragonflies, while October to April are when wintering birds arrive for a short stay before migrating again in spring.
Good to Know
The Wetland Park covers a wide area in Hong Kong, so it’s a good idea to check out what you want to see on the official website. It’s also advisable to check the weather forecast – on a hot day, bring a sun hat, umbrella and sunscreen. Visiting when the tide is low lets you see a greater diversity of birds and crabs at the Riverside Hide and Mangrove Boardwalk.
Hong Kong Wetland Park is mostly outdoors, so bring insect repellent and wear long- sleeved clothing and closed shoes. Admission to Hong Kong Wetland Park costs around HK$30 per adult and HK$15 for children (3–17 years old). For families or group visitors, the park offers family day and group passes at discounted rates.
