Murrumbidgee River

The Wiradjuri Walking Track follows a 42km trail around the city of Wagga Wagga. It’s a great way to discover the history and nature of this regional centre.

An ideal place to start the track is at the Wagga Wagga Visitor Information Centre. From here, you'll follow the Murrumbidgee River for about 1km to the Railway Viaduct, built in the 1870s for trains to cross the flood plain and river. The new railway bridge was opened in 2007.

After a short walk through the town, the track begins the gradual ascent of Willans Hill, passing the Wagga Wagga Botanical Gardens and Zoo. Just south of the gardens you will spot a panoramic view of Lake Albert and the Australian Alps on a clear winter day.

From Red Hill Road the track heads west, leading to a historic Railway Tunnel, Silvalite Reserve and Pomingalarna Park which provides an exceptional view of the city from the west.

The track then descends onto the flood-plain, crosses the early farming land of the district and follows the river for about 6km returning to the Visitor Information Centre.
