The Murrumbidgee River at Wagga Wagga forms into a large sandy beach, known as Wagga Beach.
The beach is a popular location for swimming, picnics and barbecues during the warmer months.
Starting in 1977, the beach plays host to the Gumi Races, where people were encouraged to make rafts from inner tubing and sabotage their competition by throwing rotten eggs and flour at them.
When you visit today outside of the Gumi Races, you won’t have to dodge rotten eggs and flour, instead you’ll be able to take some time out and enjoy the meandering pace of the Murrumbidgee River.
This is a beautiful spot in My Riverina and one we hope you visit when the weather’s warmer.
