Dubbo & Districts

ABN: 88 380 398 803

ADFAS Dubbo & Districts provides for its members a yearly programme of illustrated lectures given by overseas and Australian lecturers chosen for their communication skills and expert knowledge in their fields. Lectures are followed by tea, coffee, a glass of wine and delicious food with excellent company in a lovely atmosphere.

Dubbo lies in the heart of the beautiful Macquarie Valley, in central western NSW by the majestic Macquarie River. Local attractions range from the award-winning Taronga Western Plains Zoo, historic Dundulimal Homestead (NSW National Trust), the Old Dubbo Gaol , the Wellington Caves, galleries and historic buildings to the Japanese Gardens and Dubbo Botanic Gardens. The beautiful and historic ‘Old Dubbo Gaol’ is currently being redeveloped as a stand-alone attraction and ‘Dundulimal Homestead’ is featured in a new ‘Women Settlers’ exhibition at the local Dubbo Regional Art Gallery.

The district was first visited in 1818 by the explorer John Oxley with first settlers arriving in 1824.  By 1849 Dubbo was an established village, eventually becoming a city in 1966. It is the centre for a huge agricultural region producing wheat, livestock, fruit and vegetables.

ADFAS Dubbo is in recess until mid 2021. If you are interested in joining or attending their lectures later in the year, please contact the Secretary or email dubbo@adfas.org.au  for enquiries and further information.
