Riverina Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Riverina Area
Extending from the rolling hills of the south-west slopes to the outback, unearth the rich cultural heritage of the Riverina. Within this district, activities are plentiful, offering a unique mix of old and new in contemporary rural Australia: historic landmarks, modern art and theatre, internationally renowned vineyards and stunning gardens form this impressive undiscovered region of New South Wales.
Treat your tastebuds to tantalising gourmet food and award winning wine or wander through the majestic natural surrounds. As well as the major cities of Wagga Wagga and Griffith, the Riverina District is dotted with numerous quaint little towns and villages with tales of the past and the present. Attractions, like the quirky museums and galleries within the region will brighten those miserable, rainy days and provide a cultural feast for all history buffs. If art makes your heart race, a must see is Australia's largest collection of art glass in the National Art Glass Gallery, located in the regional city of Wagga Wagga. Don't forget to stick around for the Wagga Wagga Jazz Festival.
Take a walking tour through Junee and discover history in a time where design was grand and detail was extravagant, with its picturesque architectural backdrop and streetscapes. Immerse yourself in history at every corner of this bustling city as it combines glimpses of Aussie history together with its modern lifestyle and culture. Step back in time in Deniliquin and perhaps learn something new as you guide through the stock routes that cross Australia by taking the Long Paddock Tour. Cross the Darling, Lachlan, Edward, Murrumbidgee or Murray Rivers and go for a quick paddle.
Surrounded by some of the most unique landscapes in Australia, make sure you stop by Mathoura or Pretty Pine for a cuppa or a beer, served with a heart-warming smile and a real feel of country hospitality. It'd be shame to leave what is often referred to as the 'food bowl of Australia' without a break at one of its many cellar doors and European-style cafes. Support one of the many wineries by treating yourself to a bottle or indulge in delicious chocolate produced on site at Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory.
From traditional to contemporary - there are many things to do and places to go, and with wonderful experiences and countless discoveries to be made, every avid traveller will surely fall in love with this vibrant region of New South Wales.
