If you want similar weather to the summer months without the price tag, come to Dubbo in spring. From September to November, the days average around 30°C and the crowds have yet to arrive. You'll have better luck finding deals on flights and hotels have yet to raise their prices to meet the high season demand.

If you book a few weeks in advance, you'll be able to find discounts on hotels, and you'll have the city's attractions to yourself.
