You may have noticed that you can find out more about the much-loved cow sculptures! If you check the fence at the entrance to the park opposite the Quinty Bakery, there is a sheet of paper which has a QR code which takes you to an audio trail of information about the cows, the artist and their installation. Our thanks to Wagga Wagga City Council for providing more information on our sculptures as part of the new Public Art Audio Trail

Dunns Road reopened to public after successful upgrade


Dunns Road has officially reopened to traffic after the successful completion of the Dunns Road Upgrade project.

The upgrades aimed to collectively address both growing traffic demands and safety issues as Dunns Road has become a popular shortcut for travellers heading into the city from the south.

Wagga Wagga City Council Director Strategy and Projects Phil McMurray noted that the completed upgrade marks a major improvement in safety, accessibility and efficiency for residents and travellers in the Wagga Wagga area.

“The Dunns Road upgrade was undertaken due to the need to make the road safer given its increasing popularity as a direct route from the Olympic Highway to the southern suburbs of Wagga Wagga, the airport, and major sporting and recreational facilities,” Mr McMurray said.

“Additionally, the roundabout at the Holbrook Road and Dunns Road intersection – along with the reduced speed limit to 60 kilometres per hour on the Dunns Road, Lloyd Road and Holbrook Road approaches – facilitates enhanced traffic flow in an area now safely capable of handling up to 1,000 vehicles per day.

“Council understands the closure of Dunns Road has been inconvenient for the public, and several setbacks have caused delays, so we thank the community for their patience while the upgrade was undertaken.”

Project Supervisor Nathan Elliott said he is pleased with the outcome of the upgrade.

“It’s great to have reached completion of the Dunns Road upgrade and to be able to reopen the road to the public,” Mr Elliott said.

“There were many challenges faced in delivering the project, such as the need to work with several external stakeholders, land acquisition, and drainage issues, all of which needed to be addressed to complete the project to a high standard.

“The completed Dunns Road upgrade signifies an important step forward in enhancing road safety and infrastructure in Wagga Wagga, ensuring smoother and safer journeys for all road users.”

A formal ceremony marking the project’s completion is scheduled for April 2024.

The weekly Gentle Exercise class is now a permanent event in our calendar. The older you get, the harder it can become to find the time and energy to stay active and healthy However, thanks to the Murrumbidgee Local Health District, people over 55 have the opportunity to stay active, healthy and social at several gentle exercise classes run across the area.

Uranquinty Gentle Exercise Program volunteer leader Debbie Maher said the program was the perfect way for elderly people to stay active and socialise in a judgement-free space.

“We have people come from Wagga, The Rock and several areas come out to the community hall here in Uranquinty for an hour on a Wednesday morning,” she said.

“As the leader of the Uranqunity program, I’m able to adjust the activities for people of all abilities. If people need to sit down or use chairs, they’re still able to take part, that’s what makes the program, not just here but across the region, so accessible and enjoyable.

We are very pleased to announce that Wagga Wagga City Council has been able to provide assistance to replace the floor in the hall which has suffered damage due to constant rain and damp due to the very wet weather.  New vinyl flooring has been installed and the old flooring is being well used by the Men’s Shed  to create wood storage boxes and upgrading chairs.  This is a terrific outcome for the Hall as UPA would not have been able to raise the funds needed to replace the flooring.
