Our CommunityDubbo is a vibrant, progressive community which has grown at a consistently faster pace than all other regional centres in NSW and has recently celebrated its sesquicentenniary year. The city is a major tourism mecca, featuring significant attractions such as the Western Plains Zoo, Dundullimal, Jedda Boomerangs and is located at the junction of the Newell and Mitchell Highways on a mid-way point north to south between Brisbane and Melbourne and west to east between Adelaide and Sydney.
