Introducing Albury Wodonga
This major regional centre on the Murray River, just below the big Hume Weir, is a merging of two towns, although cross-border snobbery from the NSW locals may suggest that ‘Albury’ is all that’s required. To be fair, Albury is the more interesting bit of the conurbation. It’s a good base for trips to the snowfields and high country of both Victoria and NSW, the vineyards around Rutherglen (Victoria), and the tempestuous upper Murray River (the river becomes languid below Albury). It’s also a good spot to break the journey between Sydney and Melbourne.
