Find the “Trends of 2017” Right Here in Wagga


Suburb Spotlight: Tolland


Set on the southern side of Wagga, Tolland slopes upwards from Glenfield Road to the border of Willans Hill Reserve. Providing a wide variety of lifestyle options from older modest cottages on its lower flats to palatial residences with spectacular views at its peak, Tolland has something for everyone.

Commenced during the 1970s, Tolland homes are well known for providing excellent family housing with the generous spaces of times gone by. Predominantly three or more bedroom homes1 throughout the suburb, former and present Housing NSW residences dot the landscape to the west of Bourke Street. Larger than average bedrooms and living areas, garage spaces, rumpus rooms and pools abound throughout Tolland Heights, as do lovely views from elevated balconies and verandahs.

First home buyers and investors have been seizing the opportunities provided by older, unrenovated homes to establish themselves in real estate and are benefitting from some creative redecorating and renovation.

The more-than 3,5001 Tolland residents are well provided with services including the centrally located Tolland Shopping Centre, comprising a supermarket, chemist, Dominos Pizzeria, takeaway, butcher, bakery, fresh seafood and service station, with plenty of commercial opportunities available. The local pub and bistro are renowned for great value food and atmosphere, and the suburb is also home to the city’s Jubilee Oval sporting complex, including an athletics track, hockey fields and rugby union grounds. Tolland Football Club is a dominant force in the local soccer competition and there is also a Community Centre, primary school, high school and a number of parks and reserves.

House sales have been consistant in the area, with 80 Tolland properties sold by Wagga Wagga real estate agents in the 2015-2016 financial year; the median house price for that period was $237,500, with the highest sale recorded in Tolland Heights at $575,0002.
