As the largest town along the Murray River, Albury is well placed for exploring the rural heartlands of both New South Wales and Victoria. Take to the water to swim, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard, dive into the city’s food scene, and browse the markets, or take a day trip to the Rutherglen wine region. Outdoor adventurers have lakes, wetlands, state forests, and national parks within easy reach, all with a backdrop of the Snowy Mountains. Park your caravan at one of the many waterfront campsites and tourist parks, or escape the crowds at free camping areas in the surrounding reserves.    

Where to Go

Along the Murray River  The mighty Murray River—Australia’s longest river—flows along the border of NSW and Victoria. Cross over to explore Albury’s twin town, Wodonga, on the south shore, or head east to hike and camp in Woomargama National Park. Bird-watchers will find several destinations of note along the riverside, including the Chiltern National Park and the Wonga Wetlands, or you could take in the sights from the water on a paddle-steamer cruise or canoe excursion.   Around Lake Huma Just east of Albury, the huge Huma Dam, and Lake Huma lie along the Murray River. Check into one of the lakeside resorts, pitch your tent along the waterfront, or try your luck fishing for Murray cod and rainbow trout. Walking and cycling trails circle the lake or take to the water for a boat cruise or kayak excursion. Riverina Albury lies on the southern edge of the Riverina, where sloping vineyards and fruit orchards line the lakes and waterways of the Murrumbidgee River. Enjoy swimming and water sports at the riverside beaches, visit towns like Wagga Wagga and Griffith, and stay at scenic riverfront camping grounds. This is the ideal region for a road trip, stopping to enjoy wine tasting and dine at country pubs along the way.
