Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens, Wagga Wagga

4.6
The 8 hectare (19 acre) Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens offers a small zoo, camellia garden, a walk-through aviary, a music bowl, and a tree chapel. Try to time your visit for the first or third Sunday of the month because the miniature railway runs on these days. You'll ride through woodlands and a tunnel and across a bridge. You must have covered footwear in order to board the train. If you visit any other day, you can still admire the gardens displaying roses, camellias, azaleas, and rhododendrons in the various gardens. Grab a snack at the cafe and pick up pellet food for feeding the zoo animals. Make Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens a part of your Wagga Wagga vacation plans using our Wagga Wagga day trip app .

  • Absolutely beautiful park with plenty of shade tree's, there are free BBQ in this park all under cover, public toilets are clean, plenty of parking throughout the park, wheelchair access is good, there is a small Zoo in this park that is free to enter, a wonderful children's play area, small cafe to buy light meals and snacks. Walking tracks with free excercise stations to keep your fitness up, there is also a Chinese Garden within the park worth taking a look as well also a Water Wise Garden.
  • A great place to visit. Feed the animals, wonder through the various gardens, ride the trains or have a BBQ with family and friends. Excellent for young children.
  • Brilliant!!! Our local council could learn alot from the layout of these gardens..just stunning... and the free zoo is magnificent to stroll around with the kids...we spent 4.5 hours here and still didn't see everything...only downside for us is that we spent so long wandering around we missed lunch at cafe... maybe need to extend lunch hours especially now weathers warming up...had to leave to find food
  • Good experience. I understand the miniture railway is run by volunteers but it would be good to see more sessions during the school holidays
  • Great place for a picnic, great for children with plenty of play areas, and don't forget the fantastic ride on railway. Lovely open-air chapel, great to spend a little time there reflecting on the creation around your.
