I would strongly suggest a visit to the lovely Hunter River in NSW which is also a gateway to the Hunter Valley Wetlands. A wide variety of fish species are available for anglers. It is a fantastic swimming spot and also a close proximity to the Hunter Wetlands National Park and the Hunter Wetlands ( a popular location for bird watching and a well known conservation habitat for birds). The location is very family friendly with a wide range of activities suitable for all age groups. Picnic and BBQ facilities are available. A favourite location for conservationists and bird lovers due to the large number of threatened species that nest and breed in this area. Highly recommended for families and nature lovers.
