That’s right – we’re off to Dubbo! Via Cowra, Canowindra, Parkes, Orange and Bathurst. There is so much to do and see in the region, that the tour has expanded to 5 days and 4 nights!!
On Day 1, enjoy a guided tour of Cowra visiting the Japanese Gardens and Cultural Centre, Prisoner of War Campsite and World Peace Bell.
Experience Blind Freddy’s Bushranger Tour before a glamorous dinner in Canowindra with the fabulous Tommy Jeffs at his beautifully restored 1915 Montrose House.
On Day 2, go ‘up, up and away’ on an optional hot air balloon ride (weather dependant), before a visit to ‘The Dish’ in Parkes followed by lunch on the public art trail and a lesson in Wiradjuri Cultural Astronomy.
The headline act of this fabulous tour is an overnight stay at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo in an Animal View Cabin at their Zoofari Lodge. That’s right – you can wake up to zebra, rhino, ostrich and giraffe not metres from the deck of your accommodation! This unique experience also includes African style canapes and banquet dinner, private evening and morning tours of the zoo, and gourmet breakfast.
We have the whole of Day 3 to explore the rest of zoo, visit Old Dubbo Gaol, and stay another night in Dubbo town before heading off to Orange on Day 4. On the way to Orange, we stop at the Royal Flying Doctor Service before a visit with local Gerald, to enjoy some scrumptious bush tucka on his Indigenous Cultural Adventure in a secret ancient location!?
On Day 5, we head home via Bathurst and have lunch at the beautiful Mayfield Garden at Oberon.
