Depart Melbourne 7.00AM as we head towards the Hume Highway to our first stop at Euroa for a morning break.
Soon after we travel directly to Albury for lunch and a tour of Albury visiting the Hume Dam (formerly the Hume Weir).
We then continue to Wagga Wagga, the largest Aboriginal tribe in New South Wales, for the next 2 nights. In their language, Wagga means crow and repeating it means crows, hence a place of many crows. The largest inland city in NSW, Wagga is the capital of the fertile Riverina agricultural area dedicated to wheat growing and dairying.
After arriving at our accommodation and settling in, we will head out for dinner at a local restaurant in town.
Breakfast will be in town before we head to the National Art Glass Gallery. Then it’s off to see the pride and joy of the city which has helped Wagga earn the title “Garden City of the South“. These 8.9-hectare Botanic Gardens feature drought-resistant plants from Africa and the Americas, the Camellia Garden with its Chinese Pavilion owner.
This afternoon we head to the Wagga Wagga Rail Heritage Station Museum located on the Wagga Wagga Railway Station Platform. For the past 25 years, an active force of long-term past and existing railway employee volunteers have been collecting valued railway heritage assets and artefacts.
Soon after we make our way to the charming town of Coolamon and admire the bygone architecture of heritage listed at Cowabbie Street. Here we also visit the Coolamon Cheese Factory. If time permits, we will visit the Narrandera Fisheries Centre which carries out important research into freshwater fish species which inhabit the Murray – Murrumbidgee – Lachlan and Darling River systems.
We’ll make various stops along the way home. We visit the popular Wagga Beach on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River before leaving Wagga Wagga behind.
