    I agree mate the whole greater Albury-Wodonga area is a must for australian bush images and these two are just stuning

  • yes its a good central point where you can investigate thehigh country , historic towns like beechworth and yackandandah or food and wine areas like millawa king valley and rutherglen

    i stop in a basic hotel in town thats only $59.00 per night it comes in handy

    Wonderful. Love the tree & the sky. Beautiful country.

  • there are quite a lot of trees with character at wonga , some set way out in the water serve as roosts for resident and migratory birds.

    The wetlands at dotted with bird hides, great spot if you have a long lens, even if you dont its quite relaxing sitting in the hide and watching the activity on the water, wonderful use of wate water from albury/wodonga
