“Albury Wodonga is a region in which you can enjoy just about any interest, indulge any passion, against a backdrop so beautiful it can take your breath away.”
Twice the place, twice the time
and twice the stories!
Wodonga Visitor Information Centre welcomes visiting media and goes to great lengths to make sure journalists, writers, photographers and film crews get the story and images they want when visiting the region.
To assist in this process, we can provide detailed briefs on story angles, interview “talent” and photographic opportunities prior to arrival and, if required, on-the-ground support during the visit.
Travel and accommodation can also be supplied and arranged when appropriate.
This on-line Media Centre has been created to give you easy access to background information on Albury Wodonga, some of the “good yarns” from this region, a directory of the best photographic locations, an image library and all the contact details you will need to make planning a visit as easy as possible.

We at Wodonga Visitor Information Centre know the value of a good story so when something comes to our attention that we think may be of interest to the media, we do a bit of the leg work for you. "Good yarns" are backgrounders on things we think are topical, have an interesting angle or give a new twist on an old favourite. Where we can, we will provide the contacts needed to follow up a story and any web links that will help with research.
