Home of the Western Plains Zoo & Lots More Too
"But we had a big day at the Zoo"
Strange how life goes in cycles(sounds better than circles doesn't it lol!). First visited Dubbo about 20 years ago when I teaching Year 6 at Jasper Road Public School & we were at Lake Burrendong Sport & Recreation Centre at Wellington about 40 odd minutes south of Dubbo. So..., we did the obligatory day trip to Dubbo to visit the BIG TWO tourist attractions at that time; firstly the abovementioned Western Plains Zoo (then in its early years) & the Old Dubbo Gaol. Can't say I was over the moon about either, but it's amazing how a little time (the master of understatement strikes again lol!) can broaden your perspective & actually open your mind.
The photo above demonstrates clearly to me how Dubbo has changed for the better. The lovely old wrought iron looking lamposts, the lovely greenery of the trees & these historic looking sandstone whatever you call them all give it a cool & welcoming feel.
