The Murray River flows between the twin cities of Albury Wodonga, winding through a landscape of rolling valleys, hills and lush farmlands. Once a busy trade route for paddle steamers, the river is now very much a part of Albury Wodonga's relaxed lifestyle and provides excellent freshwater fishing and an abundance of water sport opportunities.
A thriving modern city with a leisurely country style, Albury Wodonga is a great place to discover art galleries and fine cuisine. Visit the Albury Regional Art Gallery, home to an impressive permanent collection of works by Australian landscape painter Sir Russell Drysdale, or see the latest performance at one of the three theatre venues. There's also a 9-screen cinema complex with outdoor cinema viewings available during the summer months.
Amongst Albury Wodonga's greatest assets are the Murray River and Lake Hume - offering a fun and exciting backyard for exploration and adventure. Jump on a bike or throw on some joggers and immerse yourself in the cities sprawling parks, gardens and reserves.
Whatever the season, Albury Wodonga makes a great day trip from Rutherglen, and only a little more than 30 minutes drive away.
