About Albury Area

The twin towns of Albury and Wodonga straddle the Murray River which flows from the Lake Hume Dam into Lake Mulwala. 600-year-old ghostly river red gums jut from the water while lakes and river provide a picturesque Country NSW setting for water sports and activities. Go fishing and camping along the Murray River or maybe water skiing on the calm waters. Championship golf courses line the river, with excellent facilities and challenging fairways.

Albury-Wodonga has a thriving arts scene, magnificent heritage buildings, beautiful parks and gardens, shopping and dining. There are adventure playgrounds for the kids to enjoy and a good selection of accommodation, from resorts to B&Bs, apartments and hotels.

Woomargama National Park offers great views of the region while Wonga Wetlands is a series of lagoons and billabongs that's home to a variety of wildlife and century-old river red gums. If you enjoy cycling, check out the Culcairn Bike Track; walkers should head to the Wagirra Trail, the Howlong Historic Trail or the Ian Geddes Bushwalk in Holbrook.

Other towns well worth a visit include Barooga and Henty.
