Welcome to Dubbo!

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.

Dubbo Zirconium Mine

I happened to be at the Council building recently and had a skim read of the Zirconium mine proposal on public display for comment. It was enough to raise some concern. Up to this point I assumed that if a mine was being built in today’s climate it would need to be relatively ‘clean’.
