$3,000 Giveaway

Are you a Dubbo Insider? We want people to see our city the way YOU see it.

There’s more to Dubbo than just houses. That’s why we’re giving away $3,000 to locals who share their insider knowledge of #LocalPlaces, #LocalPeople or #LocalStories.

The $3,000 prize pool will be allocated in this way:

1x $1,000 major prize

2x $500 secondary prizes

10x $100 runner-up prizes

To enter, comment on the competition posts on Facebook or Instagram. To be eligible for the major prize, jump on homely.com.au and post your intel in the form of suburb or street reviews, or answers to questions posted by other Homely users. Then take a screenshot of your answers and share it as a comment on the competition post.

What kind of things could you share?

** Local Places ** Think about where you love spending time. Maybe a boutique store, coffee shop or a particular spot by the river.

** Local People ** Do you know someone who deserves a shout-out? It could be your accountant, a volunteer, or a parent.

** Local Stories ** Remember when Boundary Road was all dirt and surrounded by grazing land? Or how your neighbours moved here for a 6 month contract, 10 years ago? What are the tales we can tell about yesterday, today and tomorrow?

Frequently Asked Questions

Why homely.com.au?

Homely is the only real estate platform that users can post reviews about suburbs, streets and even answer questions from potential future residents. We want the people who know Dubbo best (YOU) to be the ones sharing the information, to give that authentic insight to people doing their research about our city. Homely ranks highly in Google searches, and we want to help in ensuring people are getting a current and correct picture about Dubbo.

How can the prize money be redeemed?

Prizes are issued as MyDubbo shopping cards, which can be redeemed at over 130 local stores – for a full list visit: dubbo.com.au/business/shop The $3,000 prize pool is broken up into a $1,000 major prize for Homely entries, plus 2x $500 prizes and 10x $100 prizes for all entries.

Do entries need to cover all three categories (ie, Local Places, People and Stories)?


You are welcome to do all three, but you only need to share about one of these elements to enter. If you do all three, they will be regarded as three separate entries.

No, this is solely and initiative of SJ Shooter Real Estate. We love the work our Regional Council also does to raise the profile of Dubbo, and we believe this campaign will compliment their initiatives. Dubbo Regional Council does administer the MyDubbo Shopping Card program in partnership with ‘Why Leave Town Promotions’.

Is this a spinoff of the I Love Dubbo campaign?

No, but it is motivated by the same desire to have the best of Dubbo out on show for all to see (and find when the Google ‘Dubbo’).

What will happen to negative entries?

Nowhere is perfect. All entries will be eligible for entry into the competition, though any offensive or obscene comments will be removed from the post and flagged as inappropriate to Homely if applicable.
