This blog is an attempt to keep a record of my travels. Not that I travel that frequently, but as the years add up I realize that there will come a time when I will no longer be able to move around as I am still able to do now. When that time comes, I would like to be able to recall the trips and share the memories with my grandkids.

Wagga Botanic Gardens and Zoo
My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend visiting the Wagga Botanic Gardens and Zoo which was just a few minutes walk away from the house, located within the Willans Hill Reserve and set on 20 hectares of what was an old gravel rock mine. There are no entrance fees for the Gardens and the Zoo.
The Botanic Gardens features many different gardens: Australian native, Bamboo garden and island, Cactus and succulent garden, Camellia garden, Rose garden, Rainforest area, Shakesperian garden, Tree Chapel, and Waterwise garden.
The Zoo has a large range of both native and non-Australian animals and birds; there is also a Free Flight Aviary. Some of the animals approach visitors and expect to be fed. Children can enjoy petting some of the farm animals.
