Murray River

The Murray River flows between the twin cities of Albury and Wodonga, winding through an unspoiled 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.

Jump on the Wagirra Trail and enjoy a leisurely walk, energetic run or bike ride along the river banks. Hire a canoe for a leisurely paddle or throw in a line to catch your dinner (you'll need a NSW fishing licence).

Other Murray River highlights include Mungabareena Reserve, great for picnics and swimming, the new Oddies Creek Playspace, and Wonga Wetlands, home to over 150 bird species.
