People will be able to have their say on the future of the Wellington Caves when the complex hosts an open day from 11am until 4pm this Saturday.

The Draft Wellington Caves Concept Master Plan is on public exhibition and Caves Coordinator Jodie Anderson said the open day was an chance for the community to take a free tour, and have some input into the plan.

“Wellington Caves was successful in securing $2.5 Million from the NSW Stronger Communities Fund for a new Visitor Experience Centre and has recently received an additional $1.3 million of state funding for facility development to support growth in the education market,” Ms Anderson said.

“To ensure this funding is maximised to its full potential … Dubbo Regional Council is investing in the development of a Wellington Caves Master Plan, which has been developed by TRC Tourism following an initial round of targeted stakeholder consultation … We want the complex to be somewhere that is not just for visitors, but somewhere that locals can enjoy as well.”

Options being investigated by council include picnic and barbecue areas as well outside dining area for the café.
