Welcome to Dimboola, a top spot to visit, a great place to stay. Dimboola is in the heart of wheat growing country.

After many dry years, water came back to the Wimmera River and reached Dimboola at the end of September 2009. The water was a welcome sight for all the people visiting the town and the 2009 Dimboola regatta was a great success. The 123rd Dimboola Regatta took place on Saturday 13th November 2010. This was be followed by the Inaugural Head of the Wimmera on Sunday 14th November 2010. There regatta is always be plenty of fun for rowers, spectators and visitors to the town.

After so many years of drought, the water came back to Dimboola in massive amounts in January 2011, with a huge flood. The Wimmera River continued to rise until the creeks on which the town was built overflowed around the town. Some houses were damaged, much of the surrounding farm land was flooded. Information about the flood at it's peak was broadcast on the ABC.
