We visited Dubbo as part of a birthday trip in 2008, and it was the first time I had been since my much younger childhood. The main reason to visit Dubbo was the Western Plain Zoo and we were not disappointed.
We spent the day driving around the zoo (if it's not so hot and your more adventurous you can bike around) and then made our way to the Zoofari Lodge to book into our luxury canvas tent before starting one of the many interactive tours with the animals.
There are three main tours, the afternoon, the evening or dusk and then the morning feeding tours.
The animals aren't the only ones well feed, with all meals included in the main house.
