Just a short drive from the city centre along Riverina Highway is Albury's , an ecosystem of lagoons and billabongs on the Murray River floodplain. Covering approximately 80 hectares, the wetlands is home to a variety of flora and fauna such as river red gums, platypuses, white-tailed water rats, pelicans and swans.



There are two walking trails through the wetlands - a shorter 1.2-kilometre blue trail and a longer 2.5-kilometre red trail. Blue and red coloured markings can be found along the way.



As you walk, you'll see an old water tank which may be of interest to some. Hand-riveted, the tank has been conserved for its structure and construction method.



In summer, water levels tend to reduce, but fortunately, the lagoon hasn't dried out completely when we were there. You might notice oil on the water's surface, that is nothing to worry about as it's just the eucalyptus oil from all the fallen gum leaves.



Although the wetlands cater for school groups, it is also open to the general public and everyone is welcome to come for a wander. Car parking, picnic areas and toilets are available onsite.
