History

Wagga Wagga is located on traditional Wiradyuri Country in the Riverina region of southern New South Wales.

The name of the city was derived from the language of the Wiradyuri people, the largest Aboriginal Nation in New South Wales. The word Wagga Wagga comes from the Wiradyuri word Waga meaning a place to dance. Waga Waga, meaning a place of dance, place of celebration. The repetition of a word expresses plural or emphasis, emphasis meaning special importance. Thus, Wagga Wagga could mean a place of many celebrations or a place of many dances.

The name Wiradyuri means “people of the three rivers” and traditionally these rivers (Lachlan, Murrumbidgee and Macquarie) were the primary source of food for the Wiradyuri people.

Wagga Wagga continues to be the traditional home of many Wiradyuri people. After years of Wagga being a government resettlement zone for Aboriginal people, it is now also home to First Nations Peoples from many surrounding Nations.This information is currently under review and consultation with the Mawang Gaway group, and will be updated shortly.
