Whats On in January

Whether you prefer taking it easy in our award-winning restaurants, cafes and pubs; or, have something more adventurous in mind, there’s a holiday in Albury Wodonga to suit every pace of life.

Wander through the galleries and the gardens, browse the markets and boutiques, sample the fresh regional produce, catch up with friends against a background of live music or get back to nature this January.

This month we welcome to our cities the players, coaches, families, friends and organisers of  the 2020 Australian Speedway Championships, Margaret Court Cup Tennis, Australian Eight Ball Junior Nationals and the Australian Junior Country Basketball Cup.

No matter your reason for visiting our beautiful cities, we’ll help you experience life as a local and make sure you don’t miss a thing.
