Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    River and Wren is Waggas iconic market. With an amazing variety of high-quality goods for sale from artwork to soaps to jewellery there is something for everyone. I attended the market last weekend with my husband and two young kids. It was a really enjoyable morning out. I bought flowers, bath bombs for my daughter, macarons and paella for lunch. I would highly recommend this market as one of the best I've ever been to.

    The curious wedge-shaped building which sits next to the main gallery spaces of the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery houses the National Art Glass Collection. I understand it is still part of the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, though it adopted its current name to recognise the collection’s national significance.

    It contains a wonderful collection of glass, displayed over two floors in a building which itself is a bit of an architectural triumph, with some contemporary stained-glass units incorporated into design. It houses some 400 pieces of contemporary art glass, beautifully displayed to capture the natural light which pours in, and taking advantage of the curious wedge shape of the building. The lower floor provides a comprehensive history of art glass in Australia. That particular display is informative, and puts the collection into perspective.

    I enjoyed my visit; there were some amazing pieces on show. It showcases Australian art glass from the 1960s to the present. At the time of my visit, I got to see an exhibition by Blake Griffiths called ‘Glass Beach’. He has used recycled glass, collected from beaches I believe, to create interesting yet somewhat bizarre human-like figures; it was almost as if these figures were mad out of sausages from a butcher’s shop. It was excellent.

    Lovers of art glass will certainly appreciate and enjoy the collection. It's worth a visit.

    We were most appreciative to have Joo-Yee show us around on a very interesting tour, explaining all of the operations on their lovely farm just outside Wagga. We learnt lots about olive oil and the different ways it can be used while the tasting of all of their products after the tour was exceptional. A lovely couple to meet, you must try their gold award winning olive oil! Well done Bruce and Joo-Yee!

    A wonderful gallery with really interesting spaces and great work on exhibition. Several different 'galleries' which to be honest were a bit difficult to find. It was Sunday so one entry was closed and we had to walk all the way around the other side and it still didn't look like we were in the right place. More obvious signage needed. But the gallery itself was very impressive.
    We went to see Nicola Dickson's exhibition which did not disappoint. The gallery shop looked impressive as well.

    One of the very few places open on New Year’s Day and not far from the cycle/pedestrian path. We called in on our first day there to pick up some local information.

    The staff were excellent; informative and friendly and we set off with not only ideas of where to visit but, more importantly, where to get a lunch … it was now around 1:30pm!

    The first place they suggested was, unfortunately, closing as we got there but YEAH, their second one was well and truly open and fabulous … Mr Lawrence.

    Would definitely recommend going to the Visitor Centre when you arrive for their local information, etc.

    It's quite small, it's not open all that often as it's run by volunteers, but it's worth checking out if you can, and it's only $2 for entry. The volunteers are quite enthusiastic and enjoy explaining the exhibits and chatting about rail history in the area, so they're more than happy to talk. Overall you can spend 5 minutes to half an hour here if you wanted. It's just a nice piece of history to see.

    The previous reviewer who compared this beach to Bondi is delusional, there can be no comparison as Bondi is on the coast and this one is inland. The playground here is HUGE, and then there’s a smaller one a little bit away for smaller kids,.
    There’s disability (wheelchair) access right down to the sand… bbq areas are huge and clean, toilets are clean too

    I love our library, however I recently witnessed a rude, loud-mouthed resident who was demanding to become a member but apparently not prepared to fill out the necessary form. Despite all his bullying and belligerence, the library staff remained calm and polite and handled the brute with dignity (whereas I'd have slapped him very hard and sent him packing). It's a privilege to have such a facility as this. And membership is free. Beautifully located, with well designed spaces providing garden views from generously sized windows as well as a wide selection of books, magazines, audio recordings, DVD's and internet access. Michael and Simon are always incredibly helpful, as are all the staff. As an avid reader and frequent borrower, I really enjoy spending time in this wonderful library.

    Lovely spot in the centre of town. Well maintained and some great spots to sit and rest.

    Drop in and walk around whilst wandering around the city.

    Great lakeside path for walking, playground with a variety of equipment and plenty of speed boats whizzing by.

    Lots of shady spots beneath the trees for a picnic.

    I was staying in the Wagga Wagga area with family and took my five year old grandaughter to this centre.
    It was a very hot day so I went there to keep cool out of the sun. What a surprise this Centre turned out to be. The customer service staff were lovely and explained the various areas available. We were both very excited and surprised at the size of the indoor play areas......from waterfalls to mushrooms it was very colourful but our favourite was the turbo pool.
    There were so many different areas suitable for all ages and abilities, and that is on top of the indoor heated pool and the outside one too.

    We took our bikes to the start of the walking track and then walked around most, but not all, of the trail as rain was forecast.

    Checked out the various information signs and wind-up audio recordings.

    Lovely walk around, although some maintenance is required in places, and we had a good morning.

    Worth visiting.
