North Wagga Wagga Village Heritage Track - Cya On The Road

A walking tour of the suburb of North Wagga Wagga, featuring twenty six sites.Brief stories attached to each site, along with photos, where available.The earliest white men to travel down the Murrumbidgee River camped at North Wagga Wagga in 1828. White people first squatted in this area in 1832 - The Tompson family on the north side of the river [Eunonyhareenya Run], and the Best family on the southern side of the river [Wagga Wagga Run].A village was first formed on the south side in 1847, and by 1849 there was a hotel and store on the northern side of the river.Both North and South Wagga Wagga are on a large flood plain. Both North and South Wagga Wagga are protected by a levee bank, but the levee bank on the south side [the main commercial centre] is higher than that on the north side. The south side levee bank has never been breached, but the lower North Wagga Wagga levee bank has seen that suburb regularly flood, most recently in 2012.
