That’s right – we’re off to Dubbo again! Via Cowra, Canowindra, Parkes, Orange and Bathurst. Our 5 day, 4 night tour to the Central West at the end of November was such a hit, that we decided to do it again!

On Day 1, enjoy a guided tour of Cowra visiting the beautiful Japanese Gardens and Cultural Centre for lunch, the Prisoner of War Campsite and World Peace Bell.

The headline act of this fabulous tour is a two night 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.

On the morning of Day 3 we explore the rest of zoo. After a ‘high tea’ lunch, you have the afternoon to enjoy the serenity of watching the African wildlife from your deck before another banquet dinner and more private tours behind the scenes. On the way to Orange on Day 4, we stop at the Royal Flying Doctor Service before morning tea with Alf and Sharon at the Banjo Paterson Museum. It’s then on to Molong, via Wellington Caves, for an Indigenous Cultural Adventure with local Gerald, and a bush tucka dinner.
