Appropriately known as the 'Hub of the West', the thriving rural city of Dubbo is a busy rail, road and air junction on the Macquarie River, halfway between Melbourne and Brisbane and just over 400 kilometres from Sydney. Dubbo is home to many attractions for the whole family, with the Western Plains Zoo probably the best-known. Specialising in large grazing animals, the zoo presents more than 1000 exotic and native animals in open exhibits.
In the heart of the city, the Old Dubbo Goal was thought to have been built in 1871 and operated until 1966, while the new Western Plains Cultural Centre, located on Wingewarra Street, is home to both the Museum and Regional Art Gallery.
