LOCAL ATTRACTIONS and ACTIVITIES

Wellington Riverside Caravan Park is ideally positioned on the banks of the Macquarie River. Short walk to town and close to the Mitchell Highway, the main road between Wellington and Dubbo.

Wellington is at the heart of the Central West region, NSW, and second oldest town west of the Blue Mountains. It’s named after the Duke of Wellington who trounced Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. 

Megafauna fossils including giant kangaroo were found at Wellington Caves in 1830 and influenced Charles Darwin’s ideas on evolution!!

We are within 30 minutes drive of Dubbo, one hour to Mudgee and wineries and 90 minutes to Orange and Molong.
