Dingo Statue

Dingo, Central Highlands Area

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, others say that Moses Wafer, an earlier pioneer, heard dingos howling at night and named the town around his camping site. A bronze statue of a Dingo is in the town commemorating the town's name.
