For the adventurous types
Morning | Rise with the sun and trek on high through the Birramal Conservation Area. This wonderful, rugged area can be found in the south-west of our city near the Lloyd housing estate. Start your walk up off Holbrook Road and head up past the Symbolism public artworks. From here head past the sugar glider poles and keep travelling west until you get to the top of the rise and be rewarded with countryside views to the south, including, on a clear day, views of Kengal, The Rock Nature Reserve, in our neighbouring Lockhart Shire.
Noon | After all that hiking, you must be hungry … and thirsty. Enjoy a freshly brewed beer, teamed with a pizza or some other tasty bites off the menu, at The Thirsty Crow Brewing Co. - Wagga Waggas’ home-grown brewery.
Once you’ve fuelled up, it’s time to jump on the bike for some down hill trail fun at Pomingalarna Reserve. Just ten minutes’ drive from Wagga Wagga’s CBD, ‘Pomi’, features a number of trails with various levels of difficulty. Need a bike? You can hire one from local bike specialist, Kidsons Cycles.
Night | Set up camp under the stars. Choose from a river side reserve, such as Oura Beach Reserve, 15 minutes from Wagga Wagga, or Big4 Holiday Park Wagga Wagga has campsite available. Grab a hamper from Knights Riverina for dinner, dessert or cheese and wine sorted.
Morning | Take the kids for a play at Livvi’s Place playground at Wagga Wagga's Bolton Park – one of the city’s newest play spaces.
Noon | After burning off all that energy at the park, treat the kids, and yourself, to in-store made gelato in a cup or cone from Gelatissimo Wagga Wagga. Then it’s off to explore the natural wonders at Marrambidya Wetland – how many birds and animals can you spy? And, right across the road from the wetland is Wagga Wagga’s own strawberry farm. Pick as many berries as you like at Bidgee Strawberries and Cream (open seasonally from October to April).
Night | Many Wagga Wagga eateries are family-friendly, so take your pick and enjoy the night off cooking – choose from Romano’s Hotel, Giuseppe’s Restaurant and Bar or Schnitz.
