Redevelopment of the hire centre

#Building a Better Zoo, #Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo

Posted on 30th July 2018 by Media Relations

Riding a bike around the Taronga Western Plains Zoo is a quintessential part of a visit to the Zoo in Dubbo. The old hire centre had been around for a long time, so it was time to redevelop it and improve the area to make hiring a bike or electric cart easier and quicker for visitors.  

The redevelopment of the hire centre sees $1.3 million invested in the area to construct new storage areas for the bikes as well as a charging area for our electric carts. The project also includes the construction of a new ticket booth, installation of security cameras as well as the installation of a 100kw solar system to power the facility and the neighbouring building in the area. 

The new facility will aim to make hiring bikes and electric carts for guests more efficient and allow us to store the fleet.

The hire centre redevelopment will be completed in November 2018.
