Resting at the foot of the Great Dividing Range, just along the Murray River, is a major regional town called Albury. If you like fancy architecture, they’ve got it here. Are you a wino (in a responsible way)? Perfect. There’s a spectacular wine region less than an hour’s drive away. Browse lastminute.com.au’s fantastic offers on cheap holidays in Albury and make a choice between red and white.
Number one on your list of must-dos is getting your hands on a vehicle from lastminute.com.au’s Albury car hire options. If you’re super into architecture, pay a visit to the Albury Library Museum—it’s a thing of beauty. Check out The Crossing Place: A Story of Albury, a learning experience that’ll help you understand the history of the town from the early days of the Wiradjuri (native settler) to modern times. Another awesome architectural site to see is the Albury railway station, which is still in operation.
An Albury holiday isn’t complete without a 48-km trip to Rutherglen for a day of wine tasting. There’s around 17 different wineries within the town’s limits, so you won’t have a problem finding a suitable one to sample the goods. A couple of these wineries are considered some of the world’s best by wine aficionados, so they must be good. The wine experts could just be a bunch of drunks who enjoy wine, but what’s the difference? If all you drank was the port, that’d be enough.
If we had the savings you have thanks to our Albury holiday packages, we wouldn’t know what to do. But you, you should go shopping. Check out the stores on Dean Street, the city’s main shopping district. There’s also a few commercial malls like the Centrepoint Shopping Centre, Myers Complex and Lavington Square you can blow your stacks at.
Time to eat. Stay on Dean Street and check out the cafes. Get your hands on a hot meat pie and then wash it down with a fresh fruit smoothie. Don’t worry, it’s not just juice bars and acai cafes; there’s a bunch of restaurants ranging from Indian food to Thai and even some Mexican joints. Whatever you do, make sure you pick up a bag of kangaroo jerky.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, Dean Street is pretty much the centre of everything during Albury holidays, and that includes the nightlife. Pubs, pubs and more pubs. Check out any of the major hotel resorts in town that have great bars and nightclubs on site.
