Information

Wagga Wagga is at the eastern end of the Riverina region where the slopes of the Great Dividing Range flatten and form the Riverina plain. It is the state's largest inland city, and is an important agricultural, military, and transport hub of Australia.

Wagga Wagga's location midway on the main National Highway between Sydney and Melbourne has made it an important heavy truck depot for a number of companies.

During World War I the town was the starting point for the Kangaroo recruitment march. The Great Depression and the resulting hardship saw Wagga Wagga become the centre of a secession movement for the Riverina region. Wagga Wagga became a garrison town during World War II with the establishment of a military base at Kapooka and Royal Australian Air Force bases at Forest Hill and Uranquinty.
