The Wagga botanical Gardens is a wonderful venue for a day out. My wife and I attended the fair on Saturday, spending much of the day there walking the grounds whilst speaking to local stall holders and interest groups and clubs.
Well tended and an oasis in currently dry Wagga, it’s a credit to those that tend the parks and Gardens, unlike the local roads!
Great place for a family picnic or gathering.

What a treasure! The bottom floor had items made by local artisans and a lovely group of women that were set up in the art space from all parts of Australia. They were open for viewing and discussion on their work. It was really wonderful to be able to speak with the creators of what we had enjoyed so much in the gallery. Upstairs is a remarkable exhibit of professional art pieces. The curator said he had over 600 pieces and brings them out on a sort of rotational basis. Although photos upstairs were forbidden due to copyright issues he did allow me to take a wide view of numerous pieces just not close to any one specifically, for which I was quite grateful.

Lake Albert is one of Wagga's most popular recreational facilities. It caters for boating, fishing, swimming and other aquatic activities, and is commonly used by walkers, joggers and bike riders. It is family friendly and a must for visitors to Wagga Wagga. Eight fitness stations have been installed in four locations on the eastern side of Lake Albert. Set over 800m, the fitness stations are very popular with users of the lake. The walking track around Lake Albert is 5.5 kilometres.
Lake Albert offers something for everyone. There is a 5.5km walking track with exercise stations for the fitness fanatics, there are numerous fishing spots around the lake for anglers and for the family looking for a day out there are several free gas BBQ's set around the well maintained lawns. There is a well equipped playground to keep the kids occupied. Most weekends there are either power boats or sailing boats out on the water for just another added attraction.

Formerly the city's Council Chambers, this historic building now hosts local and touring Exhibitions covering history, science, innovation and technology. The Museum of the Riverina's two sites bring history to life, with Exhibitions and activities for all ages.
We stopped in at the Museum of the Riverina in Wagga Wagga, it was free to get in and we do love free. The exhibits change every few months we were told by some lady who we weren’t sure if she worked there or was just a regular there. She ended up following us and telling us all about all of the displays which was fine, never got her name but thanked her at the end of it for taking us through the museum, pretty sure she wanted me which isn’t surprising. Enjoyable time, well set up displays and exhibits, check it out.

As the last remaining Riverina World War II Base within a network of bases incorporating Narrandera, Temora, Deniliquin, Tocumwal and Uranquinty; this Aviation Heritage Centre represents the only repository for regional specific RAAF memorabilia.

The displays of aircraft in the front lawn were very interesting to get up close with
Loved the fact that it was a gold coin donation
The volunteers were a wealth of information and personal knowledge
Highly recommend to visitors and locals who may not have been

We just turned up at 3:30pm found the owners to be very kind and gave as a mini tour of the picking, production and packing, followed by a tasting then we brought a few items. Took about 1 hour in total and was most enjoyable.

Wagga Beach located on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, in the centre of the largest inland city of Wagga Wagga. It is very popular during the summer months, when the temperature is climbing. Relax on the shaded lawn, picnic on the banks of the river or go for a swim. Barbecue facilities available. To learn more about the Murrumbidgee River, visit the information display. You might even catch a glimpse of the famous five o'clock wave!
Beach is clean and tidy on an inland river, so tides aren't generally a problem except when irrigation water comes downstream from dams. As is normal for these type of locales the water can be very cold and the river bottom highly variable and dangerous. You should never consider swimming inland rivers without company.
This aside is quite pretty and provides good BBQ facilities, tables & Seating with abundant toilet facilities.
Also links up to several running/walking tracks and has substantial car parking.
A great place to while away the hours whether you swim or not.

Come visit us in 2016, our 70th birthday year! Wagga Wagga City Library is the place to go for all your information and recreation needs.
Wagga Wagga's library sits alongside the lake/park where Bayliss St changes to Fitzmaurice St. The long glass wall means that there is always a pleasant vista of the park. The Reading area is quiet, and there is a good number of workstations available. When you tire of Reading or computing it is just a few steps to the adjacent art gallery, glasswork museum, exhibition museum annex or coffee lounge. I always make it one of the places I visit on my occasional trips to Wagga Wagga.
