Nestled in hundreds of hectares of grazing country, Dingo is a convenient access point for exploring the Blackdown Tableland National Park as well as home to the annual World Dingo Trap Throwing Competition and Picnic Races in July. This charming rural town is located just across the railway line from the Capricorn Highway, west of Rockhampton.

The origin of the town's name is shrouded in mystery. Some say a railway surveyor saw a dingo on the creek bank and gave the town its name whilst others say that Moses Wafer, an early pioneer, heard dingoes howling at night and named the town after his campsite.

The last colony of the endangered Bridled Nailtail Wallaby was found north of Dingo.

For more information about events and activities, just ask at the Dingo Roadhouse - a 24 hour service station on the Highway that also works as an information centre for travellers.
