So close to town to enjoy a quick picnic lunch and refreshing swim. Current was very strong so perfect for a float round the point. Large sandy beach, plenty of shade, easy access from our hotel.

When in Wagga on a nice sunny day, be sure to drive to Wagga beach, and sit and enjoy the ambience, this place is great for a picnic, swim, whatever. It is a huge area so you should find a spot among the locals.

This is a highlight of any trip to Wagga Wagga. The traditional and famous 5 O'clock wave (adjust for daylight saving) is a spectacular event for all. many people congregate to get this wonderful experience. Well worth a visit.
