Dubbo is a vibrant centre in the Orana region in the heart of New South Wales situated at the junction of the Golden, Mitchell and Newell highways, straddling the Macquarie River.
Dubbo was first settled in the 1840's when a store was opened on the banks of the Macquarie River by Jean Emile de Bouillon Serisier.  It soon became a stopping point for settlers heading out in search of better pastures and for drovers herding cattle mobs south to the Victorian markets of the day.
Today, Dubbo is a prosperous regional service centre with one of Australia's largest saleyards operations and a widely diversified rural economy.  In fairly recent years, it has also developed as a major tourist destination with the establishment of the Taronga Western Plains Zoo which is located near Dubbo on the undulating plains of the central west.  This rural setting provides the perfect accommodation for what was Australia's first open-range zoo.
