Dubbo Sustainable City Expo and Science Festival


The Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC) is set to host the 2016 Dubbo Sustainable City Expo & Science Festival on Saturday 27 August 2016 from 10am until 2pm.

Western Plains Regional Council’s Sustainability Coordinator, Catriona Jennings said the Expo and Science Festival will enable community members to discover how to live and work more sustainably, and to explore the central role of science in achieving a sustainable future.

“Last year we had a fantastic turn out at the WPCC with over 1000 residents attending,” Ms Jennings said.

“There will be 40 exhibitor displays, including a range of sustainable living exhibits, with tips on how to reduce household energy and water bills, create less waste, and live in harmony with the environment,

“There will be hands-on science exhibits to inspire and engage the local community about the wonders of science. There will also be a live show and light refreshments at the Science Café, and plenty of kids’ activities and competitions to enter,” Ms Jennings said.

“Some of the highlights of this year’s program include the live science show with Fizzics Education, native animal encounters and a chance to learn fun circus skills with Circus West,” she said.
