The town of Wagga Wagga has an abnormally high percentage of athletic success. This has led to an event called the "Wagga Effect," which presupposes that being born here gives you a higher chance of being an athletic superstar. One legend states that this is due to a large wave called the "5 O'clock Wave" that arrives every day at 5 p.m. and feeds drinking water sources with a special nutrient. This wave attracts visitors eager discover the truth about the legend, and perhaps catch a little of the magic themselves. The strangeness of the town even caught the attention of Mark Twain who paid a visit in the 1890s. The population of just under 50,000 straddles the Murrumbidgee River, a major transport river for the region, so you'll find many travelers, traders, and sports fans sitting at the pubs in town telling their tales. Wagga Wagga is in New South Wales. Use our Australia visit planning app to arrange your visit to Wagga Wagga and any other destinations in Australia that take your fancy.
