A lot more diverse than people probably realise
Just way too far from the beaches..
In a nutshell
Have to see the Western Plains Zoo
I'd be lying if I said that it really stood out in my mind clearly now. My friend introduced me to the joys of being able to get a reasonably priced meal, and then spend what you saved on drinks and the "pokies".
To get into the RSL you must come from at least 15 kms away, I think... may be less or more than that. Coming from Toronto, Canada allowed me free entrance into any of the clubs.
Favorite Dish: We ate in the Bistro in Dubbo's RSL - I think there was a more upscale dining room here. The food was good - had roast lamb and a good selection of vegetables. It was well cooked, and local lamb, and a reasonably sized serving.

If you visit any Australian city or town in the
country you'll usually be presented with a choice of either Angus & Robertson's or Dymocks or just one or the other.
I love it when we visit a place to find there's a different bookshop to our two big Aussie franchises (not that there's anything wrong with either of them, hey're both very good).
so I was very pleased when we found then Book Connection in the main street of Dubbo, not too far from where the main photo on my Dubbo intro was taken.
What to buy: What makes it so special? For me it was the excellent range of Australiana/Australian history books that you don't normally find in one of these smaller shops in particular

If you come to Dubbo, then you can expect to see Aboriginal people in the streets, etc.
This is because the Tubbagah People of the Wiradjuri Nation are Dubbo’s traditional owners, and still make up 10 per cent of the local population (2006 Census).
Not only did I see the people, but I saw their beautiful paintings
The museum and galleries of the Western Plains Cultural Centre, showcase indigenous artworks and capture the history of the Tubbagah People. At the Terramungamine Reserve, there are examples of Aboriginal grinding grooves used by the Tubbagah People of the Wiradjuri tribe to sharpen tools.
Like riding your Bicycle, then go for a ride along Tracker Riley Cycleway, which weaves around the Macquarie River in Dubbo. It is named after Alec Riley, the first Aboriginal police tracker to reach the rank of sergeant and to receive the King’s Medal. Aboriginal trackers are extremely good!
So you can see, Dubbo is quite an interesting place to learn about the Aboriginal culture.

While you are at the zoo you may see some Emus wandering around free. Don't try approaching them - they are not friendly, and could do you some serious injury. All you have to do is to take one look at those beedy red eyes and just see malice lurking within. Use your telephoto lens and get close that way. The poor folks in the car beside him were afraid to get out, and we didn't want to get any closer to get to our car. We waited until he decided to wander off.
