Wagga Wagga, or “Central” as it’s more commonly known, is the centre of the city, and understandably one of the largest suburbs of the area. Boasting a broad range of coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques, along with two notable shopping centres, Central comprises a variety of housing options, from units and apartments, to older style homesteads, terraces, townhouses and modern houses. With the Murrumbidgee River winding its way through the district, many residences boast views of the river or lagoon in addition to the convenient central location.
