The Fish River rises on the plateau south east of Oberon, and flows generally to the north-west, becoming the main headwater of the Macquarie River just east of Bathurst. The river is impounded by a reservoir near Oberon which supplies water for the region. The Fish River descends 493 metres (1,617 ft) over its 119 metres (390 ft) course.
