Staying in a Wagga Wagga camping site is an affordable way to experience the area known as the Riverine. There are over a dozen campsites in and around the city, several of which enjoy a relaxing setting next to the Murrumbidgee River. And despite its odd name, there is plenty to like about this Australian city, about a five hour drive from Sydney. The city is known for its art galleries, dining scene and beautiful riverbank walks, and it’s also the home of a 22 acre botanical garden and the country’s 9th best beach. Walking and cycling trails abound here too, and these take in wetlands, lakes and forests; some also take in sites associated with the indigenous Aboriginal people. The Wiradjuri Trail is one of the longest in the area, and consists of a 42 kilometer lop around the city, suitable for walkers or cyclists.
