The Toyota Tour de OROC is organised by the Rotary Club of Dubbo South to raise funds for Macquarie Home Stay. After many years of community fundraising, the first stage of Macquarie Home Stay was opened on 29 January 2019. More funds are needed though to develop further stages of the facility. Macquarie Home Stay is based in Dubbo but services people throughout the entire Orana Region. More than 50 per cent of admissions to Dubbo Hospital come from outside of Dubbo and Macquarie Home Stay is a crucial facility to give patients and their loved ones a home away from home during their stay. The facility provides affordable accommodation for people in the region in a range of circumstances. From pregnant ladies through to extended treatments and emergency situations and everywhere in between.
