Dubbo Hotel & Accommodation

With a range of family attractions and quality accommodation options, Dubbo is a great holiday destination. A major hub in the Central West region of NSW, a pastoral area renowned for its superb produce and fine wines, Dubbo is most famous as the home of the world-class Western Plains Zoo.

Dubbo accommodation gives the visitor plenty of options, whether you're looking for a boutique bed and breakfast or an affordable stay for the whole family at a cheap Dubbo hotel.

This rural city is a well-established and modern place to stay, featuring quality restaurants, cafes and shops along with tranquil parklands and fascinating museums. Many Dubbo hotels are centrally located for easy access to all these local amenities.

Beyond the township, there's plenty to see and do in the area, ranging from the spectacular underground world of the Wellington Caves to the horse-riding that can be enjoyed at the Western Plains Riding Centre. Meanwhile hikers will love the rugged forested Warrumbungles, situated north of close-by Gilgandra, while the Narromine Aviation Museum offers plenty for those fascinated by all things to do with planes and gliding.

The pre-eminent attraction, however, is of course the zoo, a 300-hectare open-range sanctuary that plays host to more than 700 animals, including many rare and endangered species. No visit to Dubbo is complete without this incredible experience, where many of the animals, including African elephants, are able to roam on vast enclosures.

A great day out for the family involves hiring some bikes at the zoo - and peddling around for the day with amazing wildlife on either side of you. For an even bigger adventure, hire a car and explore Dubbo and its surrounds.

For a terrific family holiday and unforgettable visit to one of the world's finest zoological attractions, Dubbo is a superb choice, as are the nearby towns of Mudgee, Orange and Bathurst.
