are we named Oxley Museum?
Oxley Museum is situated at Wellington. The Wellington Valley was
discovered by John Oxley, surveyor and explorer
in 1816 after
passing through very disappointing country. He was very pleased
to come upon Wellington Valley and on crossing the
stream, Oxley proceeded along its bank
until his path was stopped by
"a very fine river", the long sought Macquarie, which at
equalled in size the Hawkesbury at Windsor and was much
larger than the river at Bathurst.
