The wonder underground / Australia’s prehistoric past is within reach at the incredible Wellington Caves. Unearth the mysteries of megafauna that once roamed the land and find out what those miners were up to 100 years ago in the Phosphate Mine. Marvel at the 15m tall stalagmite in the Cathedral Cave and the delicate dripping stalactites in the Gaden Cave.
Hit the water / Adventure beckons at Lake Burrendong or ‘The Dam’ as it’s known to locals. Spike the adrenaline in the warmer months and try your hand at water skiing, wakeboarding and biscuiting. Pack the reels, rods and tackle box and you may just take home the ‘big one’ with many different fish species to catch. More than just aquatic life, the dam is a haven for native Australian animals and there’s no better way to spot them than on a scenic hike. Or head out on the gently winding waterways of the Macquarie River, a favourite destination for kayakers and stand up paddleboarders.
Head back to the bush / Immerse yourself in the serenity of Wellington’s countryside at the 2,123-hectare Mount Arthur Reserve. There are six marked walking trails ranging from 30 minutes to a half day trek and vary in difficulty with all trails delivering spectacular views of the surrounding valley. Along the way you can enjoy spotting some 400 species of native flora and fauna that call the Reserve home along with many native Australian animals and birds. Or discover a natural haven at the 164-hectareBurrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum where you can wander through Fern Gully, a man-made rainforest situated beneath an enormous suspended, thatched canopy.
Gardens and greens / Mingle with Mother Nature and enjoy the tranquillity of the Osawano Japanese Gardens or pack your clubs and enjoy a round of golf on the quiet fairways of the Wellington Golf Club. Alternatively, head to the heart of town, put your feet up and enjoy a relaxed picnic in Cameron Park.
