Albury is a regional city in New South Wales, situated on the northern bank of the Murray River, just across the state border from its counterpart of Wodonga in Victoria.
Originally a custom post between the two neighbouring states during the 1850s, Albury eventually grew into an agricultural and transport hub. The prosperity of those years can be observed with the number of grand civic buildings which line the streets of Albury today, including the railway station with its imposing clocktower, built in 1881.
Good views can be enjoyed from the Monument Hill Lookout (off the Riverina Highway) and the Eastern Hill Lookout on the eastern side of town.
Albury has an abundance of parkland including its botanic gardens and recreational facilities along the meandering course of the Murray River.
