Welcome to One Door Wagga Wagga
Just a short 2.5 hour drive from our Nations’ Capital, nestled on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River sits the town of Wagga Wagga. It is more than just a big country town with its resonating vibrancy and modern infrastructure, this regional city is one to watch.
Wagga Wagga gets its official name from the Aboriginal dialect of the Wiradjuri tribe, the original inhabitants of the land, and means “the place of many crows”. However, it’s colloquial name the ‘City of Good Sports” comes from being home to many sporting heroes including Australian cricket captain Mark Taylor, rugby legend Peter Sterling and AFL great Paul Kelly. As well as it’s sporting prowess, Wagga Wagga is known for its cultural hub of stunning art galleries, showing some of the finest artworks by Australian and international artists, museums, an award winning city library and its cultural and sporting events including, Wagga Wagga Gold Cup, Jazz Festival, Youth Arts Fest, National Horse Festival and this year's regional Wellness Walk!
While you’re there enjoying the Wellness Walk, be sure to pick up a Chiko Roll! The Aussie summer staple loved by all originated in here with its first appearance at the Wagga Wagga show in 1951.
