Visiting the twin cities of Albury Wodonga will have you embracing some of Australia’s finest nature, landscapes, and agricultural delights. With plenty to do surrounding the outdoors, dining and art, Albury Wodonga makes it a great place to stop along the highway or spend a weekend ranging from relaxing to adventurous activities.

The twin cities sit alongside the Murray River, giving the area a charming, picturesque landscape, rich in art, food, and adventure. Partake in the culture of the region by spending time at a show, exhibition, or attend the Albury Wodonga Farmers Market held every Saturday to learn about the rich local produce that has influenced the region’s culinary experience. You can also visit the Murray Art Museum Albury, otherwise known as MAMA, to see some of the finest art collections in the region, including indigenous art. Take a guided tour of the museum free of charge every Monday morning.

For those seeking adventure, Albury Wodonga has a variety of activities ranging from swimming to cycling that will have you spending your days immersed in nature. Head to the Murray River for a canoe tour, fishing, or swimming. Riverboat tours can also be booked for a way to see the landscape from the water. If you want to stay on land, the Wagirra Trail will take you by bike along the Wonga Wetlands and the Albury Botanical Gardens.

While the twin cities are small, you’ll find plenty of activities to do should you make the destination a quick stop over on your road trip, or the main destination for you to escape the city life. With outdoor activities, rich indigenous culture and art, and an agricultural landscape that has brought about a robust culinary scene you’ll be bustling about at the pace of your choosing.
