New South Wales, Australia

Dubbo is a small town located in New South Wales. Located in central NSW, on the Macquarie River. It is situated on the main highway, at the cross point of the Newell, Golden and Mitchell Highways. We visited Dubbo in 1993, so some of these things may have changed. The major attraction is the 'World Famous' Western Plains Zoo. If you are heading through this way, it is definitely worth a stop.

Top Places to See and Things to Do

  1. Dubbo Western Plains Zoo: You need a whole day to explore this open range zoo. You can drive your car around the 6km circuit of exhibits, but the best way to see it is to bring your own bike or hire one, and cycle from display to display. There are over 1000 animals, including rhinos, giraffes, elephants, big cats. Hidden moats and barriers make you feel like you with these animals in their natural habitat. If you don't see it all in one day, your ticket is valid for the next day too.
  2. There are a few pubs to drink at in town. Check them out first as some may be pretty rough.
