Safari in our backyard, uncover our pioneering past and explore our creative soul. From the wide open spaces of Taronga Western Plains Zoo to the pitch-black confines of the Old Dubbo Gaol, a wealth of adventure is waiting for you in Dubbo.

See the wild in the wild when you safari in our backyard at Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Whether you travel by car, bike, electric cart or trek on foot, you'll venture through a 6km circuit featuring some of the most distinctive global wildlife habitats in the world, bordered by picnic grounds and magnificent bushland. 

Venture back in time and discover a well-preserved slice of history in Dubbo. Gaze upon the eerie gallows and hangman's kit at the remarkably intact 19th Century, Old Dubbo Gaol. Be inspired by a tale of endeavour and vision when you step back into the early colony at Dundullimal Homestead.

Browse a selection of 5,000 items telling the story of Dubbo and its people and view a Dendroglyph (carved tree), an immensely important Aboriginal artefact at the Western Plains Cultural Centre. 

Cycle the 12.5km Tracker Riley Cycleway interspersed between rugged bushland on the banks of the Macquarie River stretching from Dubbo's CBD to Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Hire a kayak or stand-up paddleboard from Adventure Watersports and discover the City's spectacular river corridor, or explore 10 hectares of undulating land at the Dubbo Regional Botanic Gardens and relax with a picnic in one of Australia's most authentic, traditional Japanese gardens.
