Dingo Queensland Australia

http://www.about-australia.com/queensland/capricorn/destinations/dingo/

Dingo is a small town located just across the railway line from the Capricorn Highway. 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 dingo’s howling at night and named the town after his camp site.

A bronze statue of a Dingo is in the town commemorating the town’s name. This busy town sits on two major highways that service the beef, mining and coal industries. Up to 1,000 vehicles pass through in one day, and it’s not unusual to see 10 triple road trains outside the roadhouse.

There is accommodation at the cattle station, where you can horse ride and muster. Dingo also holds the annual World Championship Dingo Trap Throwing and Picnic Races in July. For more information, just ask at the 24 hour service station on the Highway.

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