UNIQUE REGIONAL LIFESTYLE ON OFFER
The city of Dubbo is the hub of the Orana region, which covers a third of the land mass of NSW. It is semi-rural drawing its economic strength from a variety of industries from mining and agriculture to small industry and tourism. Unlike the boom or bust of other regional areas Dubbo does not fluctuate with a single industry. Our population is growing at the same rate as the country and will continue to do so.
Clancy’s is next door to NSW’s largest regional shopping centre serving 10,000 people each day. This gives the complex a bustling vibe along with a huge variety of shops, including international labels. It’s also helpful for running chores like banking, getting lunch and having a real break.
Dubbo is young kid’s heaven, loads of activities and a local competition in every junior sport you can imagine. Our dealership has about 35 staff, most of us are in our late 20’s-late 30’s with 6 families expecting babies before Christmas. This is the childhood of everyone’s dreams. As they grow there is a great range of education options from a spread of government schools including one walking distance from the dealership to private denomination schools, technical colleges and a University.
Internationally recognised Dubbo Zoo, brings the city a sustained tourist trade which flows on to other hospitality services and is a great leisure resource for young families. With a 5 eating options, picnic areas and a children’s playground it is an easy place to spend an hour or two for pre-schoolers: lunch with the lions one day, afternoon tea (ice-cream) with the giraffes the next or play on the swings and listen to the sounds of the jungle. For the bigger kids Dubbo Zoo is also the ultimate country bike circuit.
Dubbo is not all about the little ones. We have a great selection of entertainment for all ages including: sporting facilities, Olympic pool, sports stadiums, restaurants, fishing, shooting, camping and a short drive to NSW’s biggest wine growing area
Housing is incredibly affordable whether you are renting for a while or planning to stay and buying. Blocks of land are 600-6,000 sqm, with most are the typical ¼ acre (800 sqm) spacious single storey homes with ample gardens, many with backyard pools (the water table is very close to the surface so bore water is plentiful)
Then there is the sunshine. Dubbo is temperate one day, idyllic the next. Located northwest of Sydney our average annual daytime temperature is 24 degrees Celsius from 18 degrees in winter. Even better there are no chilling off shore or mountain winds in winter no sweltering humidity and tropical rain in summer. We enjoy a stable rainfall and dry heat so it’s very easy living.
