Moving to the Region


Situated in the heart of New South Wales, the Dubbo region is a dynamic growing centre, with a population of over 50,000 smiling people who call the region home. Take your pick from a major regional city, a growing town and a number of small villages, the Dubbo region offers the benefits of choice, relaxation and space coupled with all the amenities you could need. 


Ideally located at the intersection of major routes for road, rail and air transport, the region’s economic strength lies in the diversity of industries that reinforce its role as a vibrant regional service centre supported by a thriving retail sector and over 4,500 registered businesses. 

The main industries in the LGA are: health, retail, education, government services, tourism, manufacturing, construction, agriculture, business services and transport. 

The region is also well positioned as a growing mining services centre with mining and exploration projects, both established and emerging, flourishing across the surrounding region. 


Your new region is a place where cattle farms and cafes are within minutes of each other; where the people are relaxed, friendly and welcoming and they really mean it when they ask how you are.

A quality lifestyle, affordable housing, career opportunities and education options combine to make the Dubbo region a great place to live and we can’t wait to welcome you.
