Punters have already started making their bets on the Duke and Duchess’ visit to Dubbo in October.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will visit Dubbo on October 17 as part of their tour of Australia.

Sportsbet has Taronga Western Plains Zoo as the hot favourite of the tourist attractions they will visit at $1.75. It’s the only Dubbo attraction on the list.

The zoo beats getting a coffee at Degraves Street Cafe at $2.50, the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb at $3 and visiting the SS Maheno Shipwreck at $3.50.

Bets can also be made on the first animal the royals will pose with. Australian natives are the favourites, with koala at $2.50, kangaroo at $3.50, wallaby at $4 and wombat at $6. A great white shark is also on the list at $476.

If fashion is more your thing, money can also be put on what the Duchess will wear during her visit. The top pick at $2 is an Akubra. RM Williams and a flanno shirt aren’t too far behind on $3 and $5 respectively. Ugg boots are a less likely option at $21 or you can put a bet on a safari suit at $91.
