Wagga Wagga Tourism

Wagga Wagga is a city in New South Wales, Australia, located midway between Sydney and Melbourne. It was originally inhabited by the aboriginal Wiradjuri people. In their language, ‘Wagga’ means ‘crow’. ‘Wagga Wagga’, thus means ‘the place of many crows’. By the 1950s, the city became an important defence base and it maintains this role even today. It is now the third largest inland city in New South Wales and an interesting destination for your trip planner!
