Airports in Dubbo
What are the best things to do in Dubbo?
Taronga Western Plains Zoo
Taronga Western Plains Zoo has a reputation for being one of the best things to do in Dubbo. It's been a firm favourite with travellers buying flights to Dubbo for the last 40 years and is home to exotic creatures like lions, Sumatran tigers, elephants, giraffes, and cheetahs. Families with tickets to Dubbo can take their little ones on a zoofari, feed a giraffe or meet the local mob of meerkats.
Old Dubbo Gaol
Tap into your inner history buff with a stop at the Old Dubbo Gaol. It's one of the city's most important historical attractions and is even said to be haunted. Ghost hunters thinking about buying return flights to Dubbo to put these rumours to the test can attend special night tours where you will use EMF readers to attempt to communicate with the spirits. If that's too spooky for your tastes, there are guided and self-guided tours during the day.
Dundullimal Homestead is another historical attraction all travellers with flights to Dubbo should consider adding to their itinerary. It's one of the best-preserved homes from the 1800s and gives visitors an insight into Australia's past.
Dubbo Regional Botanic Gardens
No matter the time of year you book your return flights to Dubbo, taking time to explore the Dubbo Regional Botanic Gardens is always a good idea. Not only is entry free (perfect for budget travellers who have snapped up cheap flights to Dubbo), but the sprawling garden is divided into four parts to explore. Head to the Shoyoen Japanese Garden for waterfalls and wonderful picnic spots. For something more unusual, go to the Sensory Garden. It's been specifically designed to engage all your five senses. Don't forget to read the labels before you try to taste any of the plants found here. The other two sections are the Biodiversity Garden and Oasis Valley Garden. Both showcase plant species native to Dubbo as well as species found in the rainforest.
Dubbo Farmers' Market
If your return flights to Dubbo fall over the first and third Saturday of the month, don't miss out on exploring the Dubbo Farmers’ Market. Sip on freshly-brewed coffee as you browse the stalls on the search for locally grown fruit and vegetables, homemade baked treats, and more. Once you've collected enough culinary delights, make your way to the riverside for a picnic.
What is the best way to get around Dubbo?
The easiest way to get around the city is to hire a car. You can select a vehicle at the same time you buy your tickets to Dubbo with Webjet. The roads are easy to navigate, and there is usually plenty of parking around the streets. Having a car also gives you more freedom to plan an itinerary that doesn’t have you relying on public transport. Plus, you’ll be able to take off on any day trips to attractions that are located a bit further afield. If you're only planning to explore the city centre with your flights to Dubbo, you can use the city's bus service. It runs six days a week and has a comprehensive network. Alternatively, you can hail a metered taxi. You'll find the drivers waiting outside of Dubbo City Regional Airport (DBO)'s arrival hall, or you can flag one down from the street. Trips from Dubbo City Regional Airport (DBO) into the city usually cost $20 AUD.
When is the best time to visit Dubbo?
While you can buy flights to Dubbo all year round and experience good weather, travel during the spring is one of the optimum times to visit the city. In October, the annual DREAM (Dubbo Regional Entertainment Arts and Music) Festival takes place, and it's one of the highlights of the year. Plan your airfare to Dubbo around the event and take part in the range of events from live acoustic gigs, to a lantern parade and ballet performances. If the heat is stopping you from buying flights to Dubbo, book your trip for the end of August. The temperatures are still cool from the winter, and the milder weather is perfect for long days at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo. In fact, you're more likely to see the big cats who usually hide in the shade during the heat of the summer months. December to February is usually the peak season for the city. For travellers looking to purchase flights to Dubbo over these months, keep in mind that attractions can have larger crowds and you should reserve your hotel room well in advance.
