Stayed in a studio cabin for one night. Very impressed. Clean, modern, fully self-contained, comfortable bed, great lighting. Park has a water park for the kids and a heated pool and is a 5 minute walk to the West Dubbo Bowling Club and a few minutes drive to Western Plains Zoo.

Very disappointed in Discovery Park Dubbo (formerly Big4). Grounds are atrocious with cats eyes, bindis and virtually no grass around sites. The pool was very dirty - scum all round sides! The amenities were clean at least. The only good thing about this park is its proximity to Dubbo Zoo and the EXCELLENT STAFF manning the reception desk! Stayed before... More

Sites are ok however we asked for shady site and got the only site without any shade whatsoever. Water park is good however water was a bit cold for a 2 year old. The poor is way way way too small for the amount of sites, felt like sardines in a jar in the pool. One lady counted 50 people... More

Cabin was old, smelt of cigarettes when we first opened the door, old style decor, mattress on the bed was so old, an imprint was left which made it very uncomfortable, 'double' bed was small too, just needs a total update.

The accommodation in the Park was very good. We had a cabin, with separate bedroom. They are building more glam tents for a different experience. The park appears to cater for all sorts of travellers,

After searching for a place to house all our wedding guests for our wedding we settled on the big4 at Dubbo based on its proximity to the zoo and the family friendly facilities.

We stayed at discovery park in one of their serengeti tents. They were awesome except that they need to check the microwave when cleaning. There was some mouldy pizza left in there from previous guests. Otherwise a great place to stay for the family and perfect for the zoo
