Discover the neighborhoods of Dubbo
The town of Dubbo is located in Central West and is a popular stopover point thanks to its position at a major highway interchange. It is very popular with families due to its selection of attractions and activities. Dubbo City Regional Airport services the area and is only 7km away. The city is about 6 hours from Sydney by car and is roughly halfway between Melbourne and Brisbane.
The highlight and biggest attraction of Dubbo is the Taronga Western Plains Zoo. The zoo houses both exotic and native animals, and it is large enough that a bicycle can be rented to get around. The zoo is also one of the finest in New South Wales. A bit of history can be experienced at the Old Dubbo Gaol and the Dundullimal Homestead. For a bit of adventure, Western Plains Riding Center offers trail rides on horses from one hour to half-day tours to sites such as Mugga Hill or the Talbragar River. An art gallery and museum can be explored at The Western Plains Cultural Center.
