Dungog - Cities, Towns and Localities
Dungog was originally settled as a military outpost during 1834 to protect the local settlers from bushrangers who terrorised the local population at this time. The bushrangers were soon removed however the township remained with news of the magnificent red cedar timbers to be found in the area bringing in new settlers to harvest this natural resource. Local timber is still logged from the region and sent to Sydney and Newcastle. Many of the beautiful timbers to be found inside the Sydney Opera House were in fact sourced from the Dungog area.

Situated on the Williams River, Dungog local industries including dairy and logging, as well as having an increasing focus on tourism. As a country town in the upper Hunter Region, Dungog is promoted as the ‘Gateway to the Barrington Tops’ and is the perfect staging point for bushwalkers and day trippers going into the Barrington Tops National Park.
