Introducing Your Host Destination – Dubbo
Dubbo sits in the fertile Macquarie Valley, where the Newell, Mitchell and Golden highways meet, five hours’ drive from Sydney. The city combines a rich pastoral history with great food and wine, expansive parklands, museums, galleries, arts and crafts, and the famous Taronga Western Plains Zoo, making this part of Country NSW ideal for a family holiday.
Learn about Australia’s pioneering history on a heritage walk or at a historic homestead, Victorian-era gaol or modern cultural centre. Old Dubbo Gaol is now a museum and a chilling reminder of Victorian-era prison life. The town has several other galleries, museums and collections, as well as some outstanding natural attractions, including the Dubbo Regional Botanic Gardens.
Enjoy local produce, including the red and white wines of this emerging wine region. Surrounding villages, including Brocklehurst, Ballimore, Wongarbon, Elong Elong, Toongi and Eumungerie, are also worth a look.
Stay in one of the many accommodation options that include motels, hotels, cabins, camping grounds and B&Bs. There’s a huge range of fantastic cafes across Dubbo, all witihin walking distance of the ARTLANDS precinct so we’ve got you covered for all those little networking catch ups.
