The Murray River
Albury Wodonga’s biggest attraction is the spectacular Murray River.
At over 2500 kilometres in length, The Murray River is Australia's longest river spanning three Australian states.
Indulge in a picnic and experience Mungabareena Reserve, children’s playgrounds, Wonga Wetlands and discover wildlife including over 150 species of birds.
Part of this river forms the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria at Albury Wodonga. Travellers from Sydney to Melbourne have always enjoyed Albury Wodonga as the perfect resting place to break the interstate journey.
The river was once a busy trade route for paddle steamers. Today there are many idyllic river walks and parks to explore.
Along the river you can relax and enjoy freshwater fishing, water sports, casual walks, running, bike riding, swimming or perhaps even hire a canoe.
The Murray River is one of the region’s most popular destinations on a hot summer's day.
As water levels in the Murray are affected by irrigation releases, the best time to experience the river and capture some amazing photographs is from around mid-January to March. The winter months are when the river is at its lowest.
