ROAD TRIP!! Pack your gear for this fabulous road trip along one of Australia’s most travelled highways. We are travelling to Wagga Wagga, one of NSW’s oldest towns. Situated squarely between Sydney and Melbourne, it is a major regional town with plenty to see and do. Its rich and varied history and settlement has allowed Wagga to grow into the largest inland city in NSW.
We will be spending some time discovering the rich history of the region and many local delicacies of the Riverina.
We will be having a stopover in Goulburn on the way there and back. Goulburn is a hidden gem on our road trip and will keep us busy with a visit to the Waterworks History Museum, the Big Merino and a few other surprises.
