Fresh Produce and Wine
Dining, Wine and Gourmet Food
Following World War II, many Europeans settled here in Albury Wodonga, bringing with them their traditions and love of food. Many restaurants soon started enabling the new Australian residents to share their culinary delights.

Much of our local produce and freshly picked delicacies can be experienced in our local restaurants and cafés. There’s a food choice for all occasions in Albury Wodonga, from a family picnic by the river to a romantic evening of fine dining.

Further afield, both Rutherglen and Beechworth offer great food and wine experiences.

Inland from Albury Wodonga you'll find some of Australia’s prime vineyard areas featuring cool climate wines and even a local brewery.
There are around 20 wineries in the area where you can taste at the cellar door. Some of our award winning wineries first planted their grapes in the 1950s and 60s and are still in the hands of the same families today.
A drive through the rolling hills of the wine region is not to be missed and many of the wineries also feature restaurants or cafés so you can relax and enjoy the picturesque environment.
