Travel Guide

Explore the lush riverbanks of the Murrumbidgee and enjoy fine local produce from the fertile Riverina region in this scenic city in New South Wales.

Wagga Wagga lies in the heart of New South Wales’ Riverina, a fertile agricultural area midway between Australia’s two largest cities, Melbourne and Sydney. Stroll or cycle along the banks of the mighty Murrumbidgee River beneath tall river red gums and explore the region’s lush natural landscape. Discover Wagga Wagga’s charming downtown area and try some of the region’s fine produce, including wine, olives and beef.

Wagga Wagga’s compact city centre features two strips of eclectic boutique and retailer stores, Baylis Street and Fitzmaurice Street. Try local produce, regional wines and craft beers at downtown restaurants and cafés or the weekly Eat Local Thursday markets. Go straight to the source at the Farmers’ Market, held on the second Saturday of each month. Check out the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, which features an expansive collection of Riverina artists and Australian glass art pieces. Learn about Wagga Wagga’s European settlement and Wiradjuri Aboriginal heritage at the Museum of the Riverina. The region’s prestigious sporting history is on display at the Sporting Hall of Fame.

Explore the Murrumbidgee riverbanks and take in beautiful views of native flora and drooping willows. Walk or cycle along the riverside trails to Wagga Beach, a natural sandbar on the Murrumbidgee River. In the summer, join the locals and take a dip in the cool river waters. Lake Albert, to the city’s south, hosts powerboat and waterskiing championships. Head further south to find Livingstone National Park, a diverse bushland featuring wild orchids, woodland birds and grey kangaroos.

Don’t miss the Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens, which holds a fascinating collection of native and exotic plants. Kids will love the gardens’ small zoo and miniature railway.
