  • Go to Old Dubbo Gaol if we have time

What actually happened

Called in at Bunnings in Dubbo and got a cheap cordless and some bits. Bunnings are all the same wherever you go down to the sausage sizzle out the front!

Went to the zoo. Was a bit expensive to get in – $94 for the two of us. We decided to walk rather than drive and it was a hell of a long walk and a really hot day. Next time we will definitely hire a golf cart. The animals all look a lot happier at Western Plains than they do at Taronga. Being able to walk on grass and sit under trees agrees with them.

After the zoo we went in to Dubbo and had lunch at the Amaroo Hotel. Was a nice hotel and an excellent lunch. Then we visited the Old Dubbo Gaol. That’s how a gaol should be!
