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 .

  • Beautiful Gardens. Australian animals including kangaroos, bird aviary with ducks, parrots, cockatoos, peacocks and others. There's 20 hectares of themed garden beds including Great rose, and Japanese gardens. There's a narrow gage railroad with rides, and a play area. The train has now runs on certain weekends. Check the website. It's close to a Museum. A must visit.
  • These gardens and zoo are delightful and free to the public! The zoo animals are in clean enclosures, at the time I attended the entire zoo seemed unattended but that added to it's charm as I seemed to have the place to myself. The native garden beds were okay, nothing too unusual but it was nice to see some mature versions of garden-variety natives on display.
