Are there currently restrictions on travel to Dubbo related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Dubbo along with the rest of Australia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew. Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia. Australia has enacted temporary travel restrictions for flights to Melbourne due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases. All international travelers are required to quarantine for 14 days at the first point of entry, unless they're granted an exemption upon request. Quarantines take place in state-designated facilities and fees depend on the state, ranging from $2500 for one adult in the Northern Territory to $3000 for one adult in New South Wales. International flights are currently being diverted away from Victoria. Airline crew are subject to self-isolation until their next scheduled flight. For more information on quarantine rules in the Australian states, check the following websites: New South Wales The Northern Territory Western Australia Foreign nationals may transit through Australia if the connecting flight is within 72 hours of the arriving flight. They must either have a transit visa or be nationals of a visa-exempt country.

Travelers who plan to leave the airport before boarding their connecting flight or who will be at the airport for longer than 72 hours need to apply for a travel exemption here and will be subject to quarantine until their departing flight. Travelers from New Zealand and Pacific Islanders may not need a travel exemption. More information on transiting Australia is available here. Travelers planning to travel across Australian state borders should note that some Australian states also have domestic travel restrictions, border restrictions, and quarantine requirements in place. In the case of onward travel within Australia, travelers are advised to check in advance with their travel/accommodation provider.. If you are looking to book a trip to Dubbo and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

There is plenty to see and do in this part of New South Wales. Dubbo lies on the Macquarie River, in the heart of Explorer Country. The traditional owners are the Tubbagah People of the Wiradjuri Nation but its more recent history goes back to the 1800s, the days of John Oxley and Robert Dulhunty. The remains of that time – the Old Dubbo Gaol, the Courthouse and the Dundullimal Homestead, one of the oldest homesteads in western NSW – are important sites around the area. Other popular draws are the Military Museum, the boomerang factory, Victoria Park and Dubbo Botanic Gardens.

Dubbo is within driving distance of Wellington, the twin-river town with fascinating caves; Parkes, which is home to the observatory that received images of the moon landing in 1969 and broadcast them to the world, Coonabarabran, the gateway to the Warrumbungle Ranges and the Astronomy Capital of Australia, and the wine area of Mudgee.
