About the Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens

In 1968 the city officially opened its Botanic Gardens, which would transform the slopes of Willans Hill into the stately gardens that are enjoyed by so many today.

Wagga’s Parks and Gardens Curator Tom Wood had been preparing the site for seven years, overseeing landscaping and the planting of over 600 plant species on the nine-hectare site.

Since then the gardens have been a labour of love for Wagga Wagga City Council, and the thousands of volunteers who have contributed to countless expansions and improvements over the years.

The Botanic Gardens Adventure Tour will show you some of the gardens' best-kept secrets, and reveal some of the stories behind these beautiful gardens.

The Botanic Gardens Adventure Tour has been created by Museum of the Riverina as part of the 50th birthday celebrations of the Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens in 2018.

    The app was geographically in accurate. We were unable to find places in the gardens and unable to drop our pin on required points to score.
