Tranquil River And Wide Open Spaces

Catch your own Rainbow or Brown Trout in the Fish River. Experience the tranquil ambience of flowing water and small rapids in this undulating bush and farmland.
The streams open for fishing at the start of October long weekend and close at the end of the June long weekend. A Freshwater fishing license is required.
Both rainbow and brown trout can be found in the Oberon area. Lake Oberon is regularly stocked with trout. The Lake is open for fishing all year round.
Unpowered or electric powered vessels are now permitted on Lake Oberon. Canoes, kayaks and sailing dinghies are a popular way to explore this picturesque Lake, which is classed as an Alpine Waterway. Life jackets must be worn.
Billabong Cottage is located on the “The Tablelands Way”, a new touring route from Canberra in the south to the Hunter Valley in the north. This is a truly unique and beautiful driving experience with spectacular scenery. www.thetablelandsway.com.au
