The city celebrates a rich history, from the early colonial settlers, to visits from infamous bushrangers such as Mad Dog Morgan and Captain Moonlite. Wagga Wagga was the starting point of the 'Kangaroo March' during WWI, where soldiers marched towards Sydney appealing to men along the way to join the Australian Imperial Force. In WWII it became a base for the air force and a training camp for the army, with branches of each still existing in the area today. When exploring the city, visitors can take a tour of the Wagga Wagga Regional Art Gallery, The Museum of the Riverina, or the National Art Glass Collection, which houses 400 pieces of contemporary art glass. Wander through the Botanic Gardens, home to a music bowl arena, a small zoo, a tree chapel, and Willans Hill Miniature Railway. The kids will enjoy a trip to Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre or Rev-arena Go-karts, or for some beach action, head to Wagga Beach, on the shores of the Murrumbidgee River.
