No longer a village, Dubbo has progressed and was named a town in 1872 and a city in 1966 and is home to over 42,000 people.

Dubbo is located in the heart of the Central West, in New South Wales, and is on the intersection of major routes for road, rail and air transport.

Average maximum temperatures are 16 to 31.2 degrees Celsius.

Dubbo is a City with plenty for the Tourist!

I have only written a little on Dubbo, there is more to see and Dubbo.
Dubbo holds quite a few Events and Festivals every year.

We are now going to take a short cut, through some smaller towns and pretty pastoral land to the small township of DUNEDOO

On our 2015 road trip, we are visiting a town we haven't been to before as we are following "THE ANIMALS ON BIKES TRAIL" that leads to YEOVAL

2016 - After a good nights sleep at Toongi Hall, it was on the road again, making our next stop for fuel at PEAK HILL

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Many Aboriginal paintings to see!
  • Cons:Has a high crime rate!
  • In a nutshell:A city with quite a bit to see!

    Here we have issues with people tagging ... spray painting graffiti even over art ... is it the same there?

      We have graffiti problems, but find they leave proper artwork alone.

    I could use a little of that 31C; it is 8C here! I guess by 'Central West' you mean of NSW, not Australia.....
