What’s happening in our community
Thursday 14 October 2021
From our CEO, Frank Zaknich

A recent report to Council contained bittersweet news for our events sector – bitter because Covid-19 has taken a heavy economic toll, but sweet because the report shows that the underlying value of our events and celebrations remains strong and ready to rebound.

A message from Mayor Kevin Mack

We've put in an application for a $30M redevelopment of the Albury Entertainment Centre. The next step is to seek funding to help deliver it to our community.

Outfoxing predators to save turtles

We're doing our part to bring endangered turtles back from the brink, with a special pen constructed at Wonga Wetlands to make it harder for foxes to eat turtle eggs. The mesh structure has been placed over a sandy bank used by turtles to lay their eggs and we're conducting a trial to see if it keeps foxes out. Simulated human activity in the area is also being used to see if it can drive predators away.

Turtle troubles
See the forest in the city

Our 2021 Summer Place pavilion is taking shape in QEII Square. Designed by architect Carly Martin, "See the Forest" aims to bridge the gap between our urban environment and the Murray River. 

Summer celebration
Celebrate our achievers

After another tough year, there's never been a better time to nominate a community champion for the Albury Awards.

Skate Park construction in final stages

The finishing touches are being added to our new Regional Skate Park in David Street and we're looking forward to opening it up soon. We're now completing the parkour area and the pump track and after that, we'll move the old half pipe into the park. We can't wait to see it in action! 

Skate plans
Jobs going at aquatic centres

Aligned Leisure is looking for swim teachers, life guards and others to work at the Albury and Wodonga aquatic centres this season.

On track for growth as shared path network grows

Local families are stepping out to enjoy our growing network of shared trails across the city. The latest works have seen the completion of the cycling/walking trail all the way from the Hume Freeway to the new Kerr Road roundabout. It's all part of a plan to deliver the infrastructure needed by a rapidly-growing community.  

Paths to the future
Panel to explore inland migration

La Trobe University will present a panel that will investigate the impacts of rapid population growth in regional areas, including Albury Wodonga.
