Discovery Parks - Dubbo
Ranked #3 of 16 Specialty Lodging in Dubbo
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stayed at Dubbo Parklands in June one family road trip. My husband, daughter and I stayed in a Serengeti tent for the novelty. It was awesome but I would recommend that if you were going to do it, don't do it in winter. There was heating but it was still pretty cold. Not sure that I would do it in the heat of summer either as there is no aircon. My inlaws however stayed in a delux cabin. Delux it was not. Yes it was clean and neat but the bathroom was tiny and it was over priced. I don't agree with complaining about the trucks on the highway though, if you book accommodation on a major highway you have to expect it.

Stayed: June 2013, traveled with family

We stayed in one of the Serengeti tent 'glamping'. Very clean, warm (plenty of heaters) and dry. The en suite shower/toilet was great. An easy walk to Dubbo Zoo and on the river bike track made it very convenient.

We loved our stay here. We booked an ensuite site and found it to be very modern & extremely clean. The park was very quiet, clean & very well managed. The staff were very helpful & friendly. It is close to the Dubbo Bowling Club and Dubbo Zoo. Would highly recommend and definitely will be back there again.

Enjoyed my stop and as usual the amenities were first class and reception service very professional. Well located park to many attractions but a bit far away from City centre (which may be good as eliminates noise).

Room Tip: Book in advance as it is a very popular Park

hi, my partner called the big4 at dubbo a few days. according to my partner the lady was nice on the phone and told us for the cabin, we were staying in the "luxurious" cabin whitch included alot of different things like bathtub, outdoor bbq etc. when we got to the big4, we were excited, as soon as we got to our cabin, we were shocked! the outside looked more like a shed then a luxurious cabin, then we went inside. the only thing that was good was the bed, the kitchen is extremely small, the bathroom was a nightmare, toilet was broken and had to keep fixing it. can hardly fit in the bathroom it is so small, dodgy shower and no bath the fridge is right infront of the bed it was soooo noisey and we couldnt sleep. so my partner went back to the reception and explained to the female there that we got ripped off.he told her when we booked over the phone the lady said we are getting the luxurious cabin and when we to the big4 got the cabin wasnt luxurious at all. so she agreed to what my partner said we will give you a luxurios cabin if you pay extra like $150 more and give you a $40 discount. the playground was boring for our little one. it seems like everywhere me and my partner go we get scammed or lied. this really isnt fair and i feel like ive been treated like rubbish. big4 say they are 4 stars. my cabin was a big 2 star.

We had a one of the houses over their, check in was fast after a long drive form Sydney. Although reception staff was not welcoming as I experienced with warm welcome form the Big4 staff at Nambucca. Their is a small pool and a large jumping pillow which kids enjoyed. Other things were average.

We have a long utility/camper trailer combination, so are always impressed by genuinely easy-to-access sites. This is a good, clean, well appointed park which has been well thought out with angled sites for easy access. We were at the back of the site so less worried about highway noise, but it's certainly not a quiet location.
