A sanctuary for birdwatchers, field naturalists, photographers and bushwalking groups, Wonga Wetlands is a fantastic way to wind down and enjoy nature at its best.

Located off the Riverina Highway, on the outskirts of Albury, the Wetlands are an ecosystem of lagoons and billabongs covering 80 hectares of Murray River flood plain. Once used as pastoral grazing land, today the wetlands are gently being restored to their original condition through the use of Albury City's reclaimed water.

Visitors will enjoy viewing wildlife via one of the many bird hides scattered throughout the wetlands, 154 bird species have been recorded in recent times. A Wiradjuri campsite provides an insight into the life and times of the traditional owners of the land and the stunning 600 year old river red gums are a constant reminder of the significance of the area. Walking trails catering for all abilities meander throughout the Wetlands and picnic and barbecue facilities are available.
