The nearby Lachlan River and Lake Cargelligo Lakes and Wetlands, with renowned fishing spots for Cod, Yellow Belly, Silver Perch and Redfin, are a mecca for fishing enthusiasts. The town hosts an Annual Fisherama in October.
Bird Watching draws “Twitchers” from far and wide. With part of the Lake now a Bird Sanctuary, two accessible Bird Hides, and the close proximity to the Round Hill and Nombinne Nature Reserves, there are ample opportunities to catch a glimpse and snap a pic of a variety of rare and threatened species. Binoculars and Bird guides can be hired from The Lake Cargelligo Tourist Information Centre.
