Overview

Wagga Beach located on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, in the centre of the largest inland city of Wagga Wagga. It is very popular during the summer months, when the temperature is climbing. Relax on the shaded lawn, picnic on the banks of the river or go for a swim. Barbecue facilities available. To learn more about the Murrumbidgee River, visit the information display. You might even catch a glimpse of the famous five o'clock wave!

Beach is clean and tidy on an inland river, so tides aren't generally a problem except when irrigation water comes downstream from dams. As is normal for these type of locales the water can be very cold and the river bottom highly variable and dangerous....More

Well laid out beach environment. Big enough to house a lot of people on a hot day out. Nice lawn area and shade.
