Zoo
“The zoo is rightly famous for it's wonderful collection of exotic and native animals, living in "free range" conditions. The new African lion exhibit is fabulous! The early morning zoo walk is definitely worth the early start.”

“The Old Dubbo Gaol is a very pleasant surprise! We have guests consistently comment that they thought the Old Dubbo Gaol was going to be just another boring tourist attraction and they are shocked at how much they enjoy their experience and the rich history they learn about. Book online for discounts.”
