Australian Towns & Cities
New South Wales: Dubbo
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Dubbo, known as NSW's hub of the west lies on a major road junction - that of the Newell and Mitchell Highways as well as a major rail junction. While its status has grown over the years as a junction town and being a target location for businesses de-centralising from Sydney, the addition of the Western Plains Zoo and the Military Museum, both on the outskirts of the city have promoted tourism. The city centre is quite attractive with most streets lined with deciduous trees, well kept Victoria Park and Macquarie Riverside parks, and Macquarie Street, which runs through the CBD.
