Dubbo Regional Council will reopen some of its tourism and culture facilities from June 1.
The Macquarie Regional Library, Western Plains Cultural Centre, Old Dubbo Gaol, visitor information centres and customer experience centres will open from Monday.
The Wellington Caves will also open next week but people will not be able to go underground.
Due to restrictions around large gatherings, the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre will remain closed.
Macquarie Regional Library
The opening hours at the Dubbo branch will be limited in the first two weeks. The library will be open Monday to Friday from 11am until 4pm.
Standard loans and returns service will be on offer with new memberships, and continue with virtual programming and Book Express - the library's new delivery service. The library will be deferring cash payments such as item reservations, at this time.
To ensure a safe customer environment, public computers, printing and photocopying, magazines newspapers, and the meeting rooms will not be available at this time.
The Wellington branch will be open from Tuesday, June 2. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for the first two weeks, the branch will open from 10am until 12pm, while on Tuesdays and Thursdays it will be 2pm until 4pm.
The library hours will be assessed on a weekly basis. The hours will be progressively increased.
Western Plains Cultural Centre
The WPCC will be reopening to the public from Monday, as will the associated cafe, for its normal hours.
Strict social distancing will apply at the café and within the exhibition space, including the museum.
The Community Arts Centre remains closed to the public with exceptions for groups with lease arrangements.
Old Dubbo Gaol and Wellington Caves
Both the Old Dubbo Gaol and Wellington Caves will reopen to the public on June 1.
However, as there are still restrictions on guided tours, it won't be possible for people to go underground at the Wellington Caves.
The café and Visitor Experience Centre will be open.
Meanwhile, visitors to the Old Dubbo Gaol will still be able to visit the site and go on a self-guided tour and learn about the prisoners and history of the gaol.
Visitor information centres
Both the Dubbo and Wellington visitor information centres will reopen to the public on Monday, with special stickers on the floor as a guide around social distancing.
The information centres will be able to assist any travellers with information about changed facility operating hours, and the sale of local produce.
Customer experience centres
The Customer Experience Centres in both Wellington and Dubbo will also reopen to the public from June 1.
Council staff ask for patience as there are renovations currently underway at the Dubbo branch. Strict social distancing will need to be observed.
Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre
The DRTCC will remain closed to the public, as there are still restrictions around large gatherings.
Many shows at the DRTCC have been rescheduled for later in the year, and patrons can still contact staff for ticket refunds or changes to their shows.
