Natural History of Dubbo Area

Unbeknownst to some, the Dubbo area offers many great opportunities to experience our natural environment including wildlife, plants and geology.  Many remnant bushland areas provide habitat for State and Federally-listed Endangered and Threatened species. 

Much of this information was previously published in the first DFNCS book 'The Dubbo Region: A Natural History' (1984).  A second book, the Plants and Animals of the Dubbo Region, was published by the Dubbo Field Nats in 2014.  To buy a copy, head to a local bookstore or purchase directly from us, here: Plants and Animals of Dubbo Region page
