On the intersection of the Golden and Castlereagh Highways, Dunedoo is 360 kilometres north-west of Sydney and is a strong community that services the agricultural region in NSW’S central west. The area is home to the Wiradjuri and Kamilaroi people; pastoral settlement began following Allan Cunningham’s exploratory trek through the Warrumbungle region in the 1820s. The town expanded with the introduction of the railway line and passenger links in 1910. Today, Dunedoo has a population of about 1200 people, and wheat, lamb, beef and wool are some of the primary industries of the region. The Dunedoo Historical Museum showcases the history of the district, and the annual Dunedoo Show and Bush Poetry Festival attract many visitors and locals to town. The nearby Warrumbungle National Park is a popular destination for camping and stargazing with its Dark Sky Park.
