Checking in to the Abraham Lincoln Motel which has great reviews and the service (via email) that I have received from Don has been very good. We have booked two Family Rooms for everyone at a cost of $260 for the night.
Update: The service was EXCELLENT, lovely people, motel was very busy that night however and was quite noisy but as we were so tired it wasn't that much of a problem. Room service breakfast was lovely!!

Whilst in Dubbo we will be visiting the Dubbo Gaol, the Western Plains Zoo and most importantly the "Village Bakery Cafe" which we remember from our visit in 2004 had the BEST Pies and baked good in Australia!!
