#1 of 14 in Things to do in Wagga Wagga
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.
