The Paddle Steamer 'Wagga Wagga' was the last of the Murrumbidgee paddle steamers. It spent forty years servicing the waterways between Mildura and Wagga Wagga carting timber, wool and provisions. In 1918 it sprang a leak and was run aground on a sandbar and left to rot. A viewing platform and informational signage have been installed to provide the best views of the wreck.

Please note: The wreck is only visible when water levels are low in the river.
