The majestic Murray River winds its way between the twin towns of Albury and Wodonga. On the north bank, Albury is a city, a national growth centre serving a region that is rich in crops, cattle, wine, history and scenery. Once a major paddle steamer port, visitors may still catch a glimpse of the old days on PS Cumberoona.
Also of interest is the grand and ornate railway station, reputed to have the longest platform in New South Wales. Wodonga lies on the south bank of the Murray River, surrounded by hills and fertile valleys and close to the historic towns of Yackandandah, Beechworth and Chiltern, and to the wineries of Rutherglen.
