Tourist influx good for local economy

Dubbo has a suprising busy weekend over Easter, as tourists travelled into the city rewarding businesses with increased trading. The Daily Liberal reported strong attendance numbers at the Western Plains zoo, with ticket sales up to 30% more than the previous year.

Dubbo City Tourism Association noted “most motels” were full across Friday, Saturday and into Sunday, and that this Easter was a good time for “employers and employees alike” with increased patronage requiring additional labour.

Rain in the area over the weekend was also good for farmers, who have been suffering under the central west drought for the past few years.
