Living in Albury-Wodonga

Albury-Wodonga is situated on the border of Victoria and New South Wales. It consists of two regional cities separated by the Murray River, with an estimated population of around 94,000.

The region is well-known for its culture, nature and cuisine - making it a real tourism hot spot, with events all year round. Picturesque parks and gardens feature throughout the community, including the Albury Botanic Gardens and Sumsion Gardens in Wodonga.

The hillsides and parkland reserves provide the ideal bushwalking, bird-watching and hiking tracks for the novice as well as the experienced walker, not to mention several lookouts. There are also plenty of purpose-built tracks and trails for cyclists of any level.
