The magnificent Murray River was once as busy as a present-day highway, with whistle-blowing paddle steamers travelling back and forth as they transported goods between rapidly growing towns and cities... continue
Maps & Guides
Today, it is the kind of peaceful waterway which tempts you to sit on its broad banks under a shady tree, relax and just let the hours slip by.
And when you feel refreshed and in the mood for exploring, Albury-Wodonga is the place to start.
These twin cities sit on either side of the Murray River, cleverly blending city style and country pace, history and contemporary attractions, art and adventure, and a great deal more.
Home to around 90,000 people, Albury-Wodonga is large enough to provide varied holiday attractions and entertainment but small enough for you to enjoy exploring on foot.
And that is certainly the best way to appreciate its distinctive character, with grand old buildings, richly established gardens and broad tree-lined streets.
19th Century Architecture and Edgy Streetscapes
There are contrasts in nature too, with fine formal gardens such as Wodonga’s relaxed Sumsion Gardens with a large lagoon, walking tracks and a fabulous playground for the children, the 1887 Albury Botanic Gardens and Albury’s Noreuil Park on the banks of the Murray River.
High St in Wodonga and Dean St in Albury are great places for those who cherish their coffee hit.
Watch for the welcoming cafes that are often hidden up little lanes and alleys.
There are also serious shopping precincts, and you will find no less than five large shopping centres with dozens of retail outlets in Albury Wodonga.
Wodonga is a rapidly growing city which is predicted to have a population of 50,000 by 2030.
To cater for this growth a number of developments have been identified that will provide more retail venues.
The twin cities are also known for great pubs, clubs and restaurants which often feature fresh regional produce.
Our Flying Fruit Fly Circus
Albury-Wodonga residents are also very serious about their art.
Australia’s world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus was born here, the highly regarded Hothouse Theatre is based here and many national and international performers receive an enthusiastic welcome at the Albury Entertainment Centre.
The visual arts have impressive homes at the Albury Art Gallery and Arts Space Wodonga and other galleries.
A $9.8 million Arts, Entertainment and Community Centre will be built on the site of the former Wodonga Civic Centre, something that will become a major attraction for the region.
Albury-Wodonga’s location on the Hume Highway, its excellent airport, great variety of accommodation and impressive convention facilities mean that many major meetings are held here.
Convention delegates love this destination, with its peaceful valleys, magnificent river, parklands and mountain backdrops embracing the twin cities.
So come and experience, explore and enjoy!
