A thriving modern city with a leisurely country style, Albury Wodonga offers a charming mix of stately heritage buildings, established parks and gardens and tree-lined streets. To the north of the river is Albury, to the south Wodonga. The Murray River flows between the twin cities, winding through a magnificent unspoiled landscape of rolling valleys, hills and lush farmlands.
Once a busy trade route for paddle steamers, the river is now part of Albury Wodonga's relaxed and attractive lifestyle. Albury Wodonga is a place to discover museums, art galleries, fine food and wine, a rich cafe culture, great golf courses and excellent freshwater fishing.
The city’s rich history and pioneer heritage is reflected in the grand architecture of its buildings, most notably the restored Albury Railway Station. Originally completed in 1882, it remains one of the most imposing and significant country stations in Australia. Explore local museums and discover the region’s pioneering past. Visit the Murray Arts Museum Albury (MAMA), an all-encompassing contemporary art experience that balances international touring exhibitions with deep connections to its surrounding regional area and cultural identity. MAMA is also home to an impressive permanent collection of works by Australian landscape painter Sir Russell Drysdale.
