Discover a haven for all outdoor enthusiasts at Wellington. Hike through a 2,100 hectare reserve, paddle a picturesque lake or meander through award-winning gardens.
Trek back in time and venture through a well-preserved slice of pre-historic history at the Wellington Caves and Phosphate Mine. Look up and then keep looking up at the Altar, a spectacular 15 metre stalagmite in the Cathedral Cave. Or don your hard hat and explore the intriguing history of the Phosphate Mine, a functioning mine during World War One.
While you're at the Caves, stroll over to the Japanese Gardens and bask in the tranquility; alternatively, pack your clubs and enjoy a year round of golf just a short stroll away at the course.
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 or biscuiting.
If throwing a leisureley line in the water is more your speed you may just take home the big one with seven 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.
Mingle with Mother Nature at the 164 hectare Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum. Wander through Fern Gully, a man-made rainforest situated beneath an enormous suspended, thatched canopy - it's a bona fide nature-lover's paradise.
Or head to Mount Arthur Reserve for a spot of bushwalking or mountain bike riding. There are seven walking trails of varying lengths and difficulties offering spectacular views over Wellington and the Bell and Macquarie rivers.
