A town under the Central Highlands Region local government area of Queensland, Dingo is situated 49 kilometres east of Blackwater, 123 kilometres east of Emerald, 148 kilometres west of Rockhampton and 762 kilometres northwest of Brisbane. The Capricorn Highway passes through the mid-section of the town and meets the Fitzroy Developmental Road; the town central sits on this junction. Surveyed in 1889, the town was named after the Dingo Creek, one of the several creeks that flow through the area. Some also say that the town was named after the dingo, Australia’s native wild dog. Nevertheless, a bronze Dingo Statue stands in the town centre.
Today, Dingo attracts a number of tourists who are looking into camping in its outback and attending some of the town’s events, including the annual World Championship Dingo Trap Throwing and Picnic Races held in July. Dingo is also home to the Taunton National Park, where a colony of the Bridled nail-tail wallaby, which is endangered, was rediscovered and protected.
