Wagga Wagga Series
I have great memories of growing up in Wagga Wagga and love seeing familiar landmarks whenever I go back there.
I have a soft-spot for this building and its fab neon sign. My late Dad was a radio announcer here for many years. 2WG studios have now moved on, but the iconic sign remains.
I must have driven over this hill a million times and have always loved this archway - especially the little magpies on the stone pillars.
The sandstone sign at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens has remained unchanged since the opening of the park in 1969.
The Civic Theatre has had a few alterations since its grand opening in 1963, but its unique blue mural on the façade has remained unchanged.
Built in 1881, this was the Town Hall up until 1999, when it became part of the Museum of the Riverina.
Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's National Art Glass Collection is the most comprehensive public collection of Australian studio glass!
Hunters newsagency has been in business on Fitzmaurice Street since 1866. I've drawn it here with the blue and white awnings and signage from the 80s.
Spotted on Lake Albert Road, Wagga Wagga.
I love these colourful signs announcing your arrival in various Wagga suburbs. This one is on the corner of Coleman and Bourke Streets.
The old Wagga Base has been replaced with a shiny new hospital, but this building stood here for as long I can remember and was a local landmark.
Bourke Street, Wagga Wagga
A tourist map with a tiled roof and railing! It's been there forever, right in the centre of town.
This is on the reverse side of the red Turvey Park sign. Corner of Coleman and Bourke Streets.
