If you have chosen to stay at the Albury Garden Court Motel, you might be pleased to learn that there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding region. We have outlined only some of these attractions for you:
There are a variety of family friendly activities in the Albury/Wodonga region, making it an ideal destination for those holidaying with the kids. Visit the local swimming pool and waterslide, try your hand at ten pin bowling or paintball, catch one of the latest films, or go wild at the Rumbles Tumbles Play Centre. Other activities include the Beechworth Honey Experience, Murray 1 Power Station and Visitor Centre, and the Witches Garden.
If you are the kind of person who loves getting outdoors and breathing in the fresh air, there is plenty of opportunity when you choose to stay in Albury. Visit the Botanic Gardens, Lake Hume (popular for fishing, sailing, water skiing and swimming), and the Albury/Wodonga Trail System (easy to medium grade walks). If you enjoy fishing, some of the other popular spots to drop a line include the Murray River and Dartmouth.
There are actually a number of wine regions around Albury, allowing you to venture into Victoria or to remain in New South Wales. Many of these wineries offer daily tastings – you won’t find vino like this anywhere else in the world – and have cellar doors so that you can pick up a bottle or two to take home. If you’re there around lunch or dinnertime, be sure to enjoy a meal in one of the delicious restaurants, otherwise explore the vines.
Believe it or not, Albury is actually quite close to the Falls Creek Snowfields (which is the largest ski and boarding resort in Victoria). In under two hours, you could be shredding up the slopes on your snowboard or enjoying a delicious hot chocolate in front of an open fireplace. There are plenty of activities to enjoy, including: snow tubing, snow biking, snowmobiles, cross country skiing, snow shoe tours, tobogganing and meeting Pete the Snow Dragon.
Those who are interested in learning about the history of the area will also have plenty of attractions to explore. The Albury Regional Museum was built in 1854 and displays many artifacts relating to the area’s roots. Other cultural experiences in the region include the Bonegilla Migrant Experience Heritage Park, Army Museum Bandiana and Jindera Pioneer Museum. These sorts of activities are ideal when the weather is poor.
A number of markets are held throughout the region on a regular basis, giving visitors the opportunity to purchase some of the delicious local produce or a souvenir to take home. The Hume Murray Farmer’s Market and Little Me Boutique Market are some of the biggest in the area. If you are interested in getting to know the locals, we recommend checking out the Community Wood Fired Oven where pizzas are served every second Sunday.
