Wiradjuri Walking Track

  • The Wiradjuri Walking Track follows a 30km trail around the city of Wagga Wagga. Suitable for people of all ages, 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 Williams 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 Rd 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 district’s original farming land and follows the river for about 6km – returning to the information centre.
  • A glossy printed brochure is available as a download from the Dept of Lands website for Wiradjuri.
