Like most regional centres, Albury has a rich and colourful history dating back to early European settlement as well as an area of cultural significance for local Indigenous people. When Victoria was separated from New South Wales in the mid nineteenth century Albury played a pivotal role as a customs post between the two colonies. These days you could spend a good day driving through town admiring the heritage listed buildings, of which there are nearly two dozen.
While there is plenty to see and do within the city itself, a popular tourist destination is Lake Hume. Located only a brief distance from Albury you can immerse yourself in activities such as water skiing, kayaking, hiking, swimming or simply relaxing in the beautiful surrounds. The lake is also a hotspot for keen anglers looking to land one of the famous Murray Cod.
Albury Airport services the entire region, including Albury’s sister city Wodonga across the river in Victoria. Flights arrive from Sydney and Melbourne several times a day and are serviced from a selection of major carriers. The airport itself is just under four kilometers from the city, so the best way to get to and from all the important locations in town is by car. When considering Budget Car Hire for your visit to Albury be sure to book through Skedaddle for an excellent deal.
