Taronga Conservation Society Australia operates the two largest Zoos in NSW, Taronga Zoo on Sydney Harbour and the Taronga Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo. With large swathes of land offering a unique open-range experience, Zoofari at Western Plains is a market leader in Australian eco-tourism.

To stay a leader in the competitive tourism market, Taronga has expanded the type of accommodation on offer. These ‘Eco Cabins’ move away from existing tented lodging and provide an affordable, secure and self-contained place to stay for families and larger groups. It offers an immersive experience for those who previously would have chosen a motel or caravan while staying in Dubbo.

 

A true feast for the senses, these independent cabins maintain a balance of creature comforts with the unmatched experience of sleeping amongst the wild animals of the Savannah.
