Day drives

WE have intentionally not included any day drives from Albury-Wodonga to the many cities, towns, villages or hamlets in North East Victoria and the Southern Riverina region of New South Wales.

All places within the region are easily reached within an hour or two, the exception being Omeo (three hours) in the Victorian High Country (visit our Facts and figures page - click here).

You can enjoy a delightful day out at most places and return to Albury-Wodonga - if that is your base - by late afternoon. We do, however, encourage visitors not to rush and support the other towns in the region by staying a day . . . or three.

* Please drive carefully. The only statistics we want to read about are visitor numbers.
