A stunning 20-hectare reserve located alongside the Murrumbidgee River, Marrambidya Wetland is only a few minutes from the Wagga’s city centre. The wetland features a Wiradjuri Healing Place, with natural vegetation, seating areas and a hand-carved totem pole.
The name of this special place was chosen to reflect the importance of this site to the local Wiradjuri people and to acknowledge the traditional name of the Murrumbidgee River.
The Healing Place was created within the Marrambidya Wetland as a place of reflection and healing for all to sit amongst nature with the river flowing nearby.
Water was central to the Wiradjuri way of life including the floodplains, creeks, billabongs and the Murrumbidgee River (Marrambidya). Therefore the site on which the Marrambidya Wetland is now situated would have been of great importance to the local Wiradjuri People.
