The twin cities of Albury and Wodonga lie on the New South Wales / Victoria border (Wodonga on the Victorian side, Albury on the NSW side), separated by the Murray River.
The surrounding floodplain's play a vital role in providing water to the river system and environmental initiatives are underway to protect and preserve this vital life source for the area. One of the biggest concerns is the salination of the river as water is removed all the way along the river, for irrigation, which is increasing the salinity levels, killing the fish stocks and dependant flora and fauna.
With its own Airport, Railway and main highways the towns are easily accessed and approximately a 3.5 hour drive from Melbourne and a 7 hour drive from Sydney.
