A thriving modern city with a leisurely country style, Albury Wodonga offers a charming mix of heritage buildings, vibrant shopping precincts, established parks and engaging cultural events.
A tale of two cities
The Murray River flows between the twin cities, winding through an unspoiled landscape of rolling valleys, hills and lush farmlands. Once a busy trade route for paddle steamers, the river is an integral a part of Albury Wodonga's relaxed lifestyle and serves as a backdrop to the parklands, cycling paths, community events and weekend gatherings. The Murray waters also provide excellent freshwater fishing opportunities.
Art, food and culture
Immerse yourself in Crossing Place: A Story of Albury at the LibraryMuseum, an inspiring multimedia exhibition chronicling the city's evolution from first contact with the Wiradjuri people to today.
See live shows by national and international performers, from The Russian Ballet and Melbourne Symphony through to stand-up comedians, pop stars and rock bands. For a dose of festival action, time your visit to coincide with Write around the Murray, Albury Applause Festival or the Music in the Gardens season.
Foodies will enjoy a drive to one of the surrounding wineries, breweries and farm gates for cellar door tastings, local produce and fine country dining.
Uncover the region's pioneering past at local museums or take the Albury CBD Walking Tour, available as a downloadable app or printed brochure. Explore the history reflected in the grand architecture of the city's buildings, most notably the restored Albury Railway Station.
Discover Australia's migrant history at the Bonegilla Migrant Experience. Built in 1947, Block 19 Bonegilla was Australia's first migration reception centre, housing over 320,000 migrants from 1947 to 1971.
Kids' day out
Both indoor and outdoor, there are plenty of fun activities to keep the little ones happy. From the numerous local parks and the waterslides at Harvey's Fun Park to indoor rock climbing, slot cars and paintball, there's no end of fun to be had. And Wodonga's Children Festival in October is not to be missed.
