Things to See & Do

You will not be short of things to do in Dubbo with nature all around you. Discovery Parks - Dubbo, has plenty of things to do onsite as well as events nearby that are sure to provide you with hours of fun and entertainment. With so many activities taking place throughout the year, make sure you check out the attractions below to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action. Check out some of the best things to do in Dubbo below.

BIG4 Dubbo Water Park (On-site)

After a fun-filled day seeing all the sights Dubbo has on offer, cool off by the new waterpark exclusive to people staying at Big4 Dubbo Parklands. This free new feature is a great way for your family to enjoy hot summer days just a step away from your accommodation. Your kids will love the state of the art features, which include a waterslide and a number of different sprays to keep them occupied. Make a splash by enjoying Big4 Dubbo Parkland’s amazing new attraction today!

Taronga Western Plains Zoo (1.9km)

Walk, cycle or drive around this six-kilometre circuit where over 700 animals sleep, eat and play. Follow the daily timetable for well-timed activities, or show up and fly by the edge of your seat by attempting as many encounters with the animals in one day. The zoo also has dining experiences, “Flavours of the World”, for those who prefer a more sophisticated use of the function centre while overlooking the serene Savannah Lake.

Dubbo Observatory (6km)

This is one sure-fire way to show your romantic side. Don’t tell your loved one where you are taking them, just jump in the car and head to the Dubbo Observatory for an intimate viewing of the night’s sky. If you have kids tagging along, get tickets for the space journey, a 90-minute expedition into the great question of life, the universe and everything.

The Old Dubbo Gaol (2.5km)

Are your kids acting up? Wonderful! Pop them into the car and take them to the Old Dubbo Gaol to show them how punishment has been dished out in years past. Take them through the Courthouse lock up and gaol, which has been restored with all the bars and locks, providing the right atmosphere required when dealing with unruly children. This trip is great motivation for good behaviour, and a learning experience to boot.

Western Plains Cultural Centres (3.4km)

Save your cash for another day when you head down to the Cultural Centre to explore the museum and gallery at no cost. There are temporary exhibits, changing contemporary art shows and one permanent exhibition dedicated to the history of Dubbo. The Centre’s shop is designed to support local artists in showcasing their talents, so use that saved coin for a souvenir of your trip.
