We are happy to announce that The Oberon Redfin Roundup will return again this year on the 26th and 27th of November 2022. As part of the ever-expanding Oberon Outdoor Festival, the Roundup has been extended across the weekend, with more entertainment, prizes, and opportunities for everyone to get involved. With support from our partners such as DestinationNSW, Fishcare, and Oberon Outdoor and Electronic, we welcome anglers of all ages and skill levels to Oberon Dam. The event will have an array of prizes for the largest catch, biggest bag, age categories, and lucky door prizes. Anglers will be able to enjoy a sausage sizzle and demonstrations from participating sponsors.
