Dubbo Events

Combining country charm with a rich history and family-friendly attractions, Dubbo draws visitors from most walks of life. If you’re looking to explore more of regional NSW, check out some upcoming Dubbo events and get ready for an outback adventure.

The heart of Dubbo’s cultural scene lies in the Dubbo Regional Theatre Convention Centre. Throughout the year, you’ll find everything from classical concerts to plays, comedy shows and other performances coming to life at this state-of-the-art venue. Dubbo is also the proud host of a number of sporting events, including car and horse races, the national indoor cricket championships, and Dubbo Stampede — a running festival which leads competitors through the grounds of Taronga Western Plains Zoo.

Dubbo accommodation can suit a wide variety of preferences and budgets. Dubbo houses everything from cottages and cabins to apartments, motor inns and luxury hotels. Self-contained options are a good choice for families, people travelling with children, and anyone who enjoys the freedom of a self-catered holiday. Bed and breakfasts offer guests the chance to enjoy a carefree getaway, while farm stays can also add an element of hands-on entertainment to your stay.
