Wagga Wagga

Wagga is not exactly Australia's hippest town. It is in close proximity to several military bases (RAAF Wagga Wagga and Kapooka) and the town's major purpose seems to be as a watering hole for Air Force personnel! As we went to visit a friend in the Air Force our stay was pretty good. If you don't know anyone in Wagga, however, don't break your neck getting there.

    Wagga isn't a bad place. Been there 4 times & each time I appreciate it a little more. For me as a surfer opening my mind to appreciate inland towns hasn't been that easy in the past.

    Don't you have anything nice to say about Wagga? It's a fun place to live...you obviously didn't get to see the real Wagga. :( I've had many more good nights out here in Wagga than in Sydney or Melbourne. Can't compare to Perth though as I've never been.
