Oberon is a very pretty Blue Mountains town that is quite close to the Jenolan Caves. The town is encounted when traveling between Jenolan Caves and Orange and/or Lithgow. The town is a good launch spot for the Caves visit.
The main industries are farming, forestry and wood products. The town usually receives snowfall during the winter months due to its high altitude.
Oberon is the birthplace of Greens politician Bob Brown.
Oberon's main streets are Carrington Avenue-Oberon Street and Ross Street. The town has several parks and sports facilities. Such parks include the Oberon Showground, Cunynghame Oval, Apex Park and The Hillary Camwich Memorial park. Oberon has a caravan park on Cunynghame Street off North Street, a hospital on North Street, a camping ground adjacent to the caravan park and a wood gallery on Oberon Street. Rotary’s Lookout is located on Abercrombie Road and to the east of the town is the Blenheim State Forest which includes walking tracks.
Oberon is a nice spot and given the proximity to the caves an overnight is recommended.
