A great area for a picnic or stroll along the river right in the heart of Dubbo. These parklands extend from behind the main shopping area of Dubbo (parallel with Macquarie street) upstream to the Sandy Beach attraction. The Visitor Information Centre is found near here also. Running through the park is the Tracker Riley Cycleway and Walking trail which allows you to do about a 13 km loop that runs along both sides of the river. There is is also an outdoor exercise area, several playing fields, toilets, a boat ramp and pontoon – see the photos.
See Fishing trail also.
Riverbank Park can be found running parallel to Macquarie Street, the main street of Dubbo.
The area is managed by Dubbo City Council. Go to www.dubbo.com.au for more information.
