Cheap flights to Albury, Australia

Albury overview

Albury and Wodonga are twin cities divided by the mighty Murray River, the longest river in Australia. Albury may not be the busy trade route it once was, but it’s a safe bet that visitors will find plenty to do inlcuding swimming, fishing, paddling or just taking in the timeless views.

Albury is situated at the foothills of the Great Dividing Range at the center of the Melbourne–Sydney–Canberra triangle. It’s a bustling, modern city, with stunning heritage buildings (the Albury Railway Station is a standout, dating from 1882), green parks, lush botanic gardens and a cosmopolitan, country-town atmosphere.

The food and drink of the region has been influenced by many of the migrants who passed through the Bonegilla Center, and who established cafes and restaurants, smoke houses and wineries in the area. Rutherglen is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the country, creating great chardonnays, pinot noirs, cabernet sauvignons, muscats and shiraz.

Albury Travel Information

  • Albury’s history – and that of the region – is told in a couple of interesting venues. There’s the Bonegilla Migrant Experience Heritage Park, just 10 miles from Wodonga. Bonegilla was the largest and longest-operating migrant reception center between the 1940s and 1970s. Hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees passed through Bonegilla, many from the non-English-speaking countries of Europe. 
  • The Ned Kelly trail, another important part of the Australian story, takes in the goldrush town of Beechworth, Glenrowan and Jerilderie where Kelly wrote the Jerilderie Letter.
