Glorying under the label of the 'greatest little town in the west', Yeoval lies at the centre of the Dubbo-Wellington-Parks triangle on the NSW western plains.
It is also Andrew 'Banjo' Patterson country. The immortal poet spent his formative years on a property just out of town. To this day, Yeoval folk keep retelling Banjo Paterson tales and anecdotes, adding substance to the short history of the town, which really only started to get going in 1900 when the gold petered out on the nearby Obley goldfields.
Yeoval also has one of west's more challenging golf clubs where nature provides the chief hazards - kangaroos on the fairways and sand greens.
Dubbo's Western Plains Zoo, about 60km north of town, is one of the world’s very best zoos. Set on more than 300ha of grass and woodland, the zoo is home to more than 1000 animals of 100 species from throughout the world, including Australia’s only African elephant herd and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros and the greater bilby.
The Parkes Observatory, and Wellington's famous caves system, bottle house and clock house are all within comfortable driving distance.
