Whether it be a sporting, cultural, rural, trade, business or lifestyle event – the City of Dubbo has earned a solid reputation for hosting successful events at quality venues.

In 2012, Dubbo hosted the 2012 Local Government Association Conference attracting 700 mayors, councillors and senior staff from councils across the state.  The conference was held at Dubbo Regional Theatre & Convention Centre and included social events held at the Old Dubbo Gaol, Western Plains Cultural Centre and Taronga Western Plains Zoo.

In 2013, 18,000 people converged on the Dubbo Showground for the annual triple j event, One Night Stand.  The event attracted record attendance and the City's motels, restaurants and cafe's overflowed with visitors.  The event was an enormous success injecting an estimated $1.32M into the local economy.

Council's Events Unit submitted the bids that attracted both events to Dubbo, and it played a significant role in delivering both events.


From the all important bid - a targeted and professional pitch - to information and assistance, the Events Unit of Council's Marketing and Communications Services Branch can help you get your event to Dubbo and then provide you with an important  framework for support.

The Dubbo Event Industry Support and Development Program was established in July 2012 to provide event organisers with vital  information and support to assist in the planning and delivery of events. The program comprises of several levels of support and helps event managers to navigate the various requirements of the City and Council in respect to establishing an event in Dubbo.
