    Pros: Great scenery, some fantastic natural and man made attractions

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Most motels offer zoo packages and none are located very far from the zoo itself.
    Cons: Store all valuables out of sight within your vehicles as breakins are common.

    Summary: Dubbo, NSW is considered the "hub" of the state. It is conveniently situated directly in the centre and thus many people drive through it as a gateway to the rest of Central/Northern NSW. It is a sensible stopping point for an overnight, or even extended ... read more

    Pros: Beautiful, Rural scenery, but still very close to Sydney.
    Cons: Get a driver for the winery tours
