This city of more than 40,000 people is a major exporter of lamb, as well as the principle shopping centre for the entire Orana region. It also draws visitors from around the world, including many who come to see the city’s zoo collection of endangered animals.

 

The Dubbo area is renowned for its many festivals and shows, ranging from multicultural events to agriculture and livestock shows and the city’s own international bodybuilding championship contest. The climate is temperate, the people are friendly, and the environment of the city is welcoming in every respect – which helps to explain why tourism has quickly become such a central part of the local economy.

 

No matter your interests, Dubbo offers something of interest. It’s one of those unique historically-rich cities that is large enough to provide a full range of cultural and entertainment attractions, and yet still small enough to maintain the small-town character that originally led so many people to call it “home.” If you’re planning a trip to New South Wales, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the city’s charms for yourself.
