John Oxley Park, Wellington

Riverside stop-off where the Bell River joins the Macquarie, right in the heart of Wellington.  An area known for its platypus sightings. There is also a boat ramp here.  Ideal location for fishing or taking paddle – upstream is best.  Beware – downstream a few hundred metres the river divides around some willows and can be dangerous even for experienced paddlers. No camping allowed here.
