Once you've had your shopping fix, its time to think about lunch, to warm up your appetite stop by the Charles Sturt University (CSU) Cellar Door and cheese factory. Specialising in Australian native flavors, their gourmet cheeses are all handmade using the finest quality and freshest Riverina milk and produced in a recipe that has proven to be an award-winning combination. Their cellar door offers a selection featuring premium table, sparkling and fortified wines.

For lunch, Magpies Nest is a must! A multi award winning restaurant featuring true regional foods and wines, the restaurant is housed in a stone stable from the first settlement in the 1860's and overlooks the Murrumbidgee River, local vineyards and olive groves. Truly the Riverina produce and vista at its best, Bon Appetite!

Re-energized after the magnificent fare make your way over to the Wagga Wagga Regional Art Gallery, housing significant collections including the National Art Glass Collection, the only collection of its kind in Australia. A prominent collection of contemporary Australian artist's prints and key works by artists from the region, the gallery provides an experience incomparable in artistic and cultural riches.

As the sun goes down and you regain your appetite freshen up and head out for some authentic Indian tandoori and curry cuisine. At the Indian Tavern Tandoori Restaurant you'll be blown away by the fantastic service and with signature Indian dishes such as Butter Chicken and Rogan Josh. Your taste buds will be set on fire.
