Welcome to your Monthly Newsletter - All About Albury

This month we hear from Albury's Young Citizen of the Year, meet our new Youth Councillors, celebrate the opening of a new facility, check out the progress of some key projects and initiatives, take a look at our upcoming events calendar... and more.

Happy reading!


Mayor Kylie King recently caught up with Albury's Young Citizen of the Year, Tylar Shepheard.

Tylar has been assisting the Albury community since he moved here in 2019. He's a volunteer with St. John Ambulance, NSW Rural Fire Service, and the Australian Navy Cadets where he is the Executive Officer. Tylar always puts his volunteer life over his paid life - he believes in helping the community first, and drops everything when an incident occurs to help his community.

Congratulations on your well-deserved award Tylar!

Hear from Tylar


Everyone in our community has an important role to play in shaping the city we call home. We all want to build an Albury we can be proud of, and to feel that we’ve all played our part. We’ve embarked on an exciting journey to develop a new Communications and Engagement Strategy that will set the direction for how we connect with our community, and we want to hear your thoughts.

You’ll have longer to swim laps and enjoy the Albury Swim Centre because we've extended the pool season until the end of June. The pool will stay open while usage remains high, so make sure you take advantage while you can! The pool is open weekdays from 6am, Saturday from 7am and Sunday from 9am.

We're vibing


In the past five years our population has grown significantly, and housing affordability and diversity has become a more prominent issue in our community. Our Local Housing Strategy provides a robust plan for how we can work with other levels of government and local providers to meet the needs of our growing and diverse community.

Tackling housing


Roald Dahl’s gruesome twosome The Twits are ready to delight and disgust, in equal measure. Mr and Mrs Twit are the nastiest couple you could ever hope (not) to meet. Both are on a quest to be meaner than the other – but, is there someone out there who can out-twit the Twits? Check them out at the Albury Entertainment Centre this May.

Get Dahlicious


Been down to the river lately? You may have noticed the boardwalk at the Riverside Precinct is starting to take shape, with the timber decking now largely complete and the balustrades being installed.

Landscaping is coming together in the adjoining spaces, with walking paths and seating for visitors to enjoy the riverside view. Next up is laying turf, constructing BBQ shelters, finishing planting, and installation of the floating jetty and pontoon.

We’re still on track to open mid-year and can’t wait to welcome everyone down to enjoy the space!

Take a walk


The Bulldogs and Roos got a first look at the new sports pavilion at the home team's first game of the season earlier this month. 

In close consultation with the Thurgoona Football and Netball Club, the new facility was designed to include separate change rooms for football and netball, coach/timekeeper and administration rooms, storage areas, public toilets and undercover spectator areas.

Kicking goals


The new section of grandstand at the Lavington Sports Ground will be named the C.T. Donnolley Stand. The late Col Donnelly had significant involvement in the development of the sports ground and sports club in its early days. A well-deserved honour for an amazing man.

On ya Col
