Albury’s twin city Wodonga is just 10 minutes away, separated by the Victorian border and the winding Murray River. Together, Albury Wodonga has so much to offer. Both towns sit on the banks of the Murray, a naturual playground for swimming, canoeing, paddle boarding and kayaking.

An Exciting Festival, just down the road!

The town of Corryong, 1.5 hours east of Albury is home to ‘The Man from Snowy River Bush Festival’ held in April each year. Corryong is the final resting place of Jack Riley, said to be the inspiration for the hero in Banjo Paterson's much-loved poem.

Set in a beautiful, largely untouched High Country landscape, the festival runs over a week and feels like the whole alpine region comes out to celebrate their famous heroes. The Man from Snowy River Festival brings locals and visitors together to experience traditional Australian bush heritage through a host of fun and exciting activities.

There are a host of events including music, historic displays, a ute muster, whip cracking, working dogs, and plenty of horse-riding events. The Man from Snowy River Challenge puts talented horse and rider teams of stockmen and women to the test to find the modern-day Man (or Woman) from Snowy River.
