A beautiful morning activity is to take a stroll through the Wagga Botanic Gardens. There are some fantastic areas to visit inside including the rose garden, the Australian natives and the cactus & succulents garden. While here it is only a few short metres across to the Museum of the Riverina site which showcases Wagga’s sporting hall of fame as well as amazing images of Wagga’s history and culture.
