Albury is located half way between Sydney and Melbourne on the New South Wales and Victorian border. Situated on the majestic Murray River, it is the best quality hotel in town and is the perfect base for a variety of activities including alpine skiing and wine trails.
Once, the magnificent Murray River was as busy as a present-day highway, with whistle-blowing paddle steamers travelling back and forth as they transported goods between rapidly growing towns and cities.
Today, it's the kind of peaceful, lazy waterway which tempts you to take time out, sit on its broad banks under a shady tree, relax and just let the hours slip by.
And when you feel refreshed and in the mood for exploring, Albury Wodonga is the place to start. These twin cities sit on either side of the Murray River, cleverly blending city style and country pace, history and contemporary attractions, art and adventure, and a great deal more.
Home to around 90,000 people, Albury Wodonga is large enough to provide very varied holiday attractions and entertainment, but small enough for you to enjoy exploring on foot. And that's certainly the best way to appreciate its distinctive character, with grand old buildings, richly established gardens and broad tree-lined streets.
