Always the first to ask, “how can I help?”, Christine has made a huge impact on the lives of many in our community. Since arriving in Albury in 1999, Chris quickly established herself as a vital, caring, and selfless member of the Albury community, establishing the iconic Brave Hearts, raising thousands of dollars for cancer services in our local region… and much more.

Good news... we've got lots of cute cats and dogs looking for a new home at our Albury Animal Care Centre! And thanks to our Keep Track of Your Best Mate initiative, if you adopt a new friend before 30 June, you could save hundreds of dollars with subsidised registration, microchipping, desexing and first round vaccination.

Adopt, Don't Shop


The new Public Toilets at National Foresters Grove in Lavington officially opened this month.

The new building includes two gender neutral toilets, one fully-accessible toilet, and the first Changing Places facility for the city. Changing Places toilets are larger than standard accessible toilets, providing people with disability and high support needs access to suitable, safe, and private bathroom facilities.

It's a first


Hovell Tree Park in Albury will also get a Changing Places facility, set to open early next year. The new Public Toilets will also include six gender neutral toilets, and one all abilities toilet with adult and child toilets and baby change table.

Making a mark


Karen Lee Andrews is headlining Music in the Gardens from 1pm on Sunday 21 May at the Botanic Gardens. Surrounded by music her entire life, Karen’s career to date has largely revolved around classic soul and rhythm and blues sounds. But in recent years, as her musicality has evolved, she’s been leaning more towards blues with a nod to dirty rock and power ballads.

Hear the music


Albury has a rich and vibrant multicultural community, and it's amazing to see people celebrating and sharing in the many different cultures that make our city so special. Our city's first ever Multicultural Plan aims to ensure every member of our community has the freedom to express their cultural, linguistic and religious traditions without fear or discrimination, and has access to equal opportunities. 

Celebrating diversity

Have you seen our new bus shelter murals?

Have you checked out the bus shelter mural on Mate Street after Swan Street? Enchant yourself with artist Reuben Boughtwood's latest work reflective of a bus waiting moment in love and companionship. Reuben engaged conversations with community members and took photographs of them, which became key reference for his concept.

We're also excited to announce the bus shelter mural on Webb Street after Kaitlers Road. Working with Murray High School students, artists from MCRT Studio created a collage with objects captured in the neighbourhood and found images. In a photo-realistic approach, they hand painted on PVC sheets installed on the pebbled surface, telling a vivid story of the local community.
