While many people might simply think of Albury as a stop-off on the way to other major cities that hog the spotlight, you’ll be happy to know that that doesn’t have to be the case. With car rental in Albury you can have quite the time, whether you’re staying for a night, a few days, or longer.
Here are some of the highlights when it comes to hanging out in Albury.
The Marvellous Murray River can be the focal point of your outdoor activities in Albury
Situated on the banks of the Murray River, it’s no surprise that there’s plenty of fun to be had out and about around Albury.
The Noreuil Park Foreshore is a spectacular area next to the river that can be the place to go for swimming, water sports, picnics, and a quiet coffee by the water. At less than a kilometre from the CBD, you might not even need the keys to your Albury rental car to get there.
If you feel like casting a line, join other anglers at Heywards Bridge and try to nab yourself some Murray Cod, Yellowbelly, or cray.
Enjoy Some Art
Pop into the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) for a dose of culture
For a relatively smaller space, the Albury-Wodonga region sure has a strong collection of solid galleries that are worth a visit if you don’t mind browsing.
Arts Space Wodonga hosts a rotating list of more contemporary exhibitions that could interest even those who don’t often find themselves enjoying museums.
We know that some of you try to get away from your parents while on holidays, but MAMA (the Murray Art Museum Albury) is another contemporary art space to see if you feel so inclined.
For something a bit different that isn’t housed in museum walls, take a stroll on the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk for a view or some fantastic Aboriginal sculptures. The trail lasts about 5km (3 miles) and features 11 pieces by local Aboriginal artists.
