Albury and Wodonga are twin cities divided by the mighty Murray River, the longest river in Australia. Albury may not be the busy trade route it once was, but it's a safe bet that visitors will find plenty to do inlcuding swimming, fishing, paddling or just taking in the timeless views.
Albury is situated at the foothills of the Great Dividing Range at the centre of the Melbourne–Sydney–Canberra triangle. It's a bustling, modern city, with stunning heritage buildings (the Albury Railway Station is a standout, dating from 1882), green parks, lush botanic gardens and a cosmopolitan, country-town atmosphere.
The food and drink of the region has been influenced by many of the migrants who passed through the Bonegilla Centre, and who established cafes and restaurants, smoke houses and wineries. Rutherglen is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the country, creating great chardonnays, pinot noirs, cabernet sauvignons, muscats and shiraz.
