Welcome to Dubbo!

Welcome to Dubbo! And now the question everyone asks: What is there to do in Dubbo?

Well, if you’re here for just a couple of days, the ‘must see’ attractions are The Western Plains Zoo and the Old Dubbo Gaol.  After that, it depends on your tastes – browse the drop down menu’s above – ‘families’, ‘relax’, ‘outdoors’ etc.

Dundulimal Homestead and Oxley Downs are two historic sites just on the outskirts of Dubbo that make a good day trip. The Local Farmer’s Markets are on the first and 3rd Saturday of the Month and the Japanese Gardens are worth a look too.

    Awesome website, i’m guessing it’s fairly new? Reading from London but a hometown girl at heart :o)

    Who is running this website?

  7. wayne says:

    Thanks. It’s been going about 5 years actually, but only just taken off in the last year or so. I host it – check out the ‘about me’ section – I take entries from anyone in Dubbo, so if there’s something you’d like to see added either write a review or let me know!

    How about something on the two National parks, especially the Goonoo Community Conservation area, which is a National park by another name. It is a great place to visit except when it is wet, which hasn’t happened for a while!
    There are lots of birds out there some nationally endangered.

  12. JC says:

    Site is a great idea but hard to read the comments against the photographic background – particularly for an old bird like me!

  13. wayne says:

    Well hopefully that’s fixed now – I’ve redesigned the site to be easier to read.

  18. We travelled to queensland in 2001 by car . stopped in Dubbo for a few nights . We ate at sticks & stones one night they cooked a gluten free pizza fresh on the night for myself . Must say that as a coeliac of 11 years it is in my mind the best pizza to date and memory i have had . In my shop a dedicated to gluten free packaged food (largest in Victoria ) i constantly tell people travelling through n.s.w. that the society up there has the best website around . this is how i found gluten free food up there .Keep up the good work
