Dubbo Area Events

The town of Dubbo is set in the Macquarie Valley, where the Newell, Mitchell and Golden highways meet, and has many natural attractions and historical points of interest. As the largest town in the Orana Region, Dubbo plays host to a wide range of events year-round.

A road trip to Dubbo is a great way to explore the Western Plains area, and take part in the events Dubbo has to offer. With a full calendar of events, there’s plenty to keep you busy. Whether you're keen to spend the morning at a weekend farmers’ market, see some stand up comedy or check out gigs from local and international acts, there’s sure to be something to tickle your fancy.

While visiting Dubbo, don’t miss the Taronga Western Plains Zoo, home to hundreds of rare and endangered animals, and also visit the nearby towns of Gilgandra, Narromine, and Wellington.
