"Australia's Greatest Open Range Zoo at Dubbo" Dubbo by AusPinay
Dubbo Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 84 photos
With over 300 hectares of bushland, Taronga's Western Plains Zoo is top notch and you will feel like being in a safari not just among African animals but around crreayres from all over the globe! It is a great open range zoo, which means, the animals are not in cages but roaming freely in wide open spaces and people see them either by riding on their own cars, bike, or even on foot as we sometimes did as the weather was fantastic when we were there.
The firsttiem we visited it was when our eldest was only 7 months old and it was stinking hot in April. Wealways were told that it is always cold there but our experiences were completely the opposite.
- Pros:wide open spoaces, fresh air, up close and personal with animals,etc
- Cons:extreme weather- too hot in summer and too cold in winter
- In a nutshell:Dubbo Zoo is always a magical place to be up close and personal with animals around the world!
