Rediscover your city: Top Spots guides

Published: 20 Jan 2022 2:15pm

Wagga Wagga City Council launched two Top Spots guides this week, showcasing some of the best places to visit for food, attractions and shopping in our city and surrounding regions.

Top Spots for Attractions + Shopping, and Top Spots for Foodies guides are now available at the Visitor Information Centre, local cafes and businesses, and online.

Visitor Economy and Events Officer Cassandra Farquharson said the pocket-size guides are a perfect way for residents to discover new venues and hidden gems within their own city.

“With the start of the new year, and with many residents staying closer to home due to the pandemic, it’s an ideal time to explore your local area as if you were a visitor,” Ms Farquharson said.

“We have such a wealth of venues and attractions in our region, there’s a good chance that there’s a fantastic café, attraction or natural place nearby that you’ve never been to.

“The guides cover our city and lots of surrounding local towns which are perfect for short day trips as well.”

Both guides contain a numbered map showing clearly where each recommended business or activity is located, making it easy to create an itinerary based on where you are.

“We’ve included 114 members from our 2021-22 Wagga Wagga Tourism Partner Program, so there’s something for everyone, including nature-based experiences, shopping, dining and bars.

“The Wiradjuri Trail is detailed in the guides’ maps as well, so you can take a stroll to build up an appetite before you pick a spot for lunch or dinner or order a takeaway.”

The Top Spots guides are free and available at the Wagga Wagga Visitor Information Centre on Tarcutta Street, through local participating businesses and online at
