The tourist brochures describe it as the Wonder of the West, and with its striking natural and man-made attractions, Wellington has a great deal to offer visitors.
From the world renowned Wellington Caves to Lake Burrendong, which has a capacity three and a half times larger than Sydney Harbour, and its many heritage homes and historic buildings, there is so much to discover.
The Caves and Phosphate Mine complex is one of the world’s most significant fossil sites and specimens from Wellington are included in collections at museums around the world.
Lake Burrendong offers a variety of water sports, such as water skiing, fishing and sailing.
Opposite the lake is Burrendong Arboretum, an area set aside to preserve endangered native trees and plants. It includes Fern Gully, a man-made rainforest which sits beneath an enormous suspended, thatched canopy.
In addition, there is bushwalking, art galleries, wineries, an outstanding golf course and the Wellington-Osawano Japanese Gardens, which are part of the Caves complex.
