We love our sport! There is a huge range of activities available for all the active types. Oberon is extremely proud of its rugby league, boasting a number of junior teams, as well as a senior team, the mighty Oberon Tigers. Oberon also has an abundance of other sports and sporting teams, including soccer, squash, darts, tennis, netball, hockey, touch football, roller skating, skate park, pony club and a very keen group of lawn bowlers, with a mixed social competition on Saturdays from noon.
The scenic Oberon Golf Course, on the foreshores of Lake Oberon, offers golfers a challenging 18 holes with plenty of variety to keep players interested. With grass greens and well groomed fairways, visitors are always welcome.
There is the women’s 18 hole competition on Wednesday mornings and a 12 hole mixed social game on Thursday afternoons, as well as the Men’s Competition on Saturdays, which also welcomes women players. Golf buggies and clubs can be hired from the club during opening hours or from the Oberon Visitor Information Centre.
During the beautiful Oberon summer, swimming at the local pool is a favourite pastime. The complex includes a 25 metre pool with disabled access, a wading pool with beach entry and a 12-metre heated pool. It is a great place for the family to visit, with a kiosk, barbecue and picnic facilities, a recreation room, shaded areas, as well as lawns.
Cycling is a very popular activity, with around town routes including the rail trail, the Northern Loop and the Southern Loop trails providing picturesque and exciting cycling.
