Dubbo lies on the Macquarie River, in the heart of Explorer Country. The traditional owners are the Tubbagah People of the Wiradjuri Nation but its more recent history goes back to the 1800s, the days of John Oxley and Robert Dulhunty. The remains of that time – the Old Dubbo Gaol, the Courthouse and the Dundullimal Homestead, one of the oldest homesteads in western NSW – are important sites around the area.
In addition to the zoo and the Gaol, other popular draws are the Military Museum, the boomerang factory, Victoria Park and Dubbo Botanic Gardens.
Dubbo is also within driving distance of Wellington, the twin-river town with fascinating caves; Parkes (home to the observatory, which received images of the moon landing in 1969 and broadcast them to the world); Coonabarabran, the gateway to the Warrumbungle Ranges and the Astronomy Capital of Australia; and the wine area of Mudgee.
Dubbo has a temperate climate. Summer temperatures range between 17 and 31 degrees although 38 degree-days are an occurrence. In winter the temperature range is 3-16 degrees.
