WESTERN PLAINS CULTURAL CENTRE
DUBBO REGIONAL MUSEUM

Dubbo Regional Museum features two distinct spaces – a permanent space devoted to the story of Dubbo entitled People Places Possessions: Dubbo Stories and a temporary exhibition space for travelling and in-house curated exhibitions.

Dubbo Regional Museum was established in 1954 in Andy Graham’s backyard shed in Wingewarra Street Dubbo and soon moved to the Drill Hall in Darling Street in 1956. It soon outgrew these premises and settled in the former Bank of NSW building in Macquarie Street. After flood damage in 2001 following a major storm, the collection was removed and stored until the completion of its new venue in the Western Plains Cultural Centre.

People Places Possessions: Dubbo Stories presents showcases devoted to the people of Dubbo through time. A photographic streetscape features images of the changing face of the city, together with a White Box tree installed in the centre of the space. A large showcase containing possessions from the collection features at one end of the Museum offering a treasure trove of items from past eras. There are over 5000 objects in the Dubbo Regional Museum collection, People Places Possessions: Dubbo Stories presents a sample of these.
