A judicial officer's time in the Dubbo region will come to an end this week.
Magistrate Andrew Eckhold has his last sitting day on Monday ahead of a move to local courts in the Hunter region next year.
He has presided at Dubbo since January 2011.
In 2015 he became one of three magistrates based at Dubbo when a system of Dubbo-Wellington, Dubbo-Bourke and Dubbo-Walgett circuits was introduced.
A NSW Justice spokesman said the system would continue next year.
Magistrate Philip Stewart, who presided over the Dubbo-Bourke circuit this year, will take over the Dubbo-Wellington circuit in 2016, he said.
Magistrate Gary Wilson will preside over the Dubbo-Bourke circuit, while magistrate Claire Girotto will continue on the Dubbo-Walgett circuit, he said.
Mr Eckhold will finish his time in the region at Wellington on Monday, after his last sitting days at Dubbo on Thursday and Gilgandra on Friday respectively.
The local Aboriginal Community Justice Group held a farewell for him at Dubbo Courthouse on Wednesday, the NSW Justice spokesman said.
The ceremony also welcomed the new magistrates.
Mr Eckhold was presented with two Aboriginal paintings and there was a performance by indigenous dancers at the ceremony, which was also attended by Judge Gordon Lerve of the district court and Mr Stewart.
Speaking in the Wiradjuri language, Mr Eckhold said: "Thank you for having me in your beautiful country.
"It has been a great honour to work with your elders and senior members of your community.
"You are a strong and proud people."
