Mixing heritage with modern culture, Wodonga blends country pace and city lifestyle with its’ mix of history experiences, cultural events and a vibrant, modern shopping precinct. In Wodonga you can visit the largest military museum in the country and learn how the foundations for modern Australia were laid at the site of the former Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre. Around 1 in 20 Australians are descended from immigrants who passed through this centre in the aftermath of the Second World War. In fact, it is thought that one in 20 Australians have ties to the centre, which makes the museum attraction on the site all the more moving.
There’s fabulous scenery all around Wodonga, along the Murray River, at the immense Lake Hume reservoir and in the peaks of the nearby Alpine Region. Take in the panoramic views from high on Huon Hill, just one of the fabulous lookouts that surround the city.
From a delicious breakfast served from a repurposed shipping container, to a chef’s hatted restaurant, visit Junction Place for cool dining and drinking options all day long.
Explore Wodonga’s cultural hub, a precinct featuring performing arts at The Cube and the new Library Gallery dedicated to the presentation of experiences that nurture creativity, connection, curiosity and expression in an inspiring contemporary environment.
