    Wagga Wagga

    July 4, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    So it's the end of Day 1 and I'm snuggled up in Wagga Wagga.

    Roadkill winner for the day: Wombats.
    Saw about 5 poor little buggers. They claimed the day's crown over a fox, a couple of possums and some other thing that was too mangled to know what it was.

    Last time I was in Wagga was for Uni Games back in....well, ages ago. The only memory I have is my mates and I fanging around the streets in a rogue trolley and being given a "complementary lift" back to the caravan park in the back of a paddy wagon, which was a fun first. I'm guessing this trip will be slightly less eventful.

    Got in at dusk, and will be out again early in the morning - not much time to explore here today. I'll pick up a few brochures at the Information Centre tomorrow and plan a bit more Wagga Wagga exploration when I stop in on the way back.

    Monday nights in Wagga are pretty dire - not too many places open for a feed (perhaps I'm just city-spoilt) but it was a cool feeling to drive through the main street and for the most part, seeing barely a soul.

    Looking forward to checking out some of the old buildings here in the daylight - looks like there's some gorgeous old architecture around the place.
