Dubbos Taronga Western Plains Zoo is one of the most appreciated local attractions and it offers visitors the opportunity to photograph animals during some special encounters. With plenty of areas where you can picnic or barbecue, this is definitely a worthwhile place to spend your afternoon. For those who opt to stay in the Zoofari tents, youll have access to two behind the scenes tours and a wonderful perspective over the savannah, so dont forget your camera. For a touch of the peaceful Asian spirit, you shouldn't miss the Shoyoen Japanese Garden, which is part of the Dubbo Botanical Gardens. If you want to take some photos of historical sites, the Old Dubbo Gaol is definitely the place to experience 19th century buildings and artefacts.
