Welcome to Dubbo!

water feature at Elston Park

Welcome to Dubbo! And now the question everyone asks: What is there to do in Dubbo?

Well, if you’re here for just a couple of days, the ‘must see’ attractions are The Western Plains Zoo and the Old Dubbo Gaol.  After that, it depends on your tastes – browse the drop down menu’s above – ‘families’, ‘relax’, ‘outdoors’ etc.

Dundulimal Homestead and Oxley Downs are two historic sites just on the outskirts of Dubbo that make a good day trip. The Local Farmer’s Markets are on the first and 3rd Saturday of the Month and the Japanese Gardens are worth a look too.

It’s a fantastic time of the year heading into spring to dine out in Dubbo and there’s some great new restaurants and coffee shops that have appeared over the winter!

Claiming to source local produce is the new Veldt Restraunt in Bultje St.

Also on Bultje St (at number 33) is the new Press coffee shop, moved over from Brigade,  a contender for the best coffee in Dubbo, they do a great breakfast.


Church St Cafe has moved up a couple of doors to the corner of Macquarie St and taken on a suburban appearance, also great coffee.
