You'll find the world's largest playable guitar on display at the local tourist information centre, a case of bigger is always better. Grab a map of the area and take a stroll along the Two Foot Heritage Tour, visiting the remains of the Hit and Miss Inn. If wildlife is more your thing, the Bundidgerry Walking Track has three loops of different length to wind you through the rocky hills, sandy river beaches and little creeks before landing you in the middle of a koala reserve. Try to find one yourself or book a local volunteer spotter; you can't go better than seeing this wonderful creature in its natural habitat.
Feeling the heat? There are many freshwater beaches lining the banks of the Murrumbidgee River, so take a dip and cool off. Once the water level drops, you can see the remains of the paddle steamer "Wagga Wagga", best seen from a viewing platform above the river. For the adventurous, waterskiing is a big local sport, with many charter operators able to take you out for a couple of hours on Lake Talbot.
