  • First and third Sunday’s of the month, usually a bit of a line up and wait but it doesn’t take long to get through. At $2 for an adult or children (under 1 free) it’s great value and the staff are fri...  more »

  • The best thing about Wagga! Its gardens are amazing and theres a real calmness to them. Great massive kids play area, zoo with all the cute animals and of course the trains. Plenty of space to relax as well as a Chinese garden. Very well kept with something for everyone to enjoy
  • These gardens and zoo are delightful and free to the public! The zoo animals are in clean enclosures, at the time I attended the entire zoo seemed unattended but that added to its charm as I seemed to have the place to myself. The native garden beds were okay, nothing too unusual but it was nice to see some mature versions of garden-variety natives on display.
  • Beautiful Gardens. Australian animals including kangaroos, bird aviary with ducks, parrots, cockatoos, peacocks and others. There's 20 hectares of themed garden beds including Great rose, and Japanese gardens. There's a narrow gage railroad with rides, and a play area. The train has now runs on certain weekends. Check the website. It's close to a Museum. A must visit.
  • Stunning gardens, wonderfully maintained. A terrific Cafe on site, as well as BBQ facilities and several play area, plus the model railway. A highlight for us is the free zoo on site, always worth the visit.
  • Beautiful peaceful place to visit any day of the week. It's great to just sit amongst the gardens as well as watching the animals in well made and planned enclosures
