Yes it’s true, our natural landscapes are stunning… but we have a growing gallery of art across our streetscapes too. Pull on your comfy kicks and check out some highlights with our map below of all the public art scattered across both cities, we dare you to collect them all!
Check out some highlights with our epic map!
Turn north from Albury’s Dean Street into Macauley Street, and you’ll discover just a few of the city’s prominent street artists featured on building walls. The vibrant visual depiction of Albury sits across the road from a giant Easter bunny!
While in Albury’s city centre, explore the wall art next to the Retro Café and then make a trip down Amp Lane for one of the cities newest large scale works – The Little Egret by @sirhc_ch
Also, Murray River Smokehouse, Waites Park drain pipes and the NBN boxes that are scattered throughout the city, all make for brilliant canvases for art.
Not to be outdone, Wodonga city centre has some real beauties adorning their buildings. We suggest a meander down Sesame Lane to check out the beautiful work by local artist Kirrily Anderson. And make sure you see the burst of colour on the side of the Medical Centre in Elgin Boulevard.
One of the most striking sculptures to call Albury Wodonga home would have to be the Porta Balls created by local artist Ken Raff. Overlooking the Murray River, the Balls are perfectly perched on the Lincoln Causeway linking the two cities together. Get nice and close by jumping on the Wagirra pathway and head south.
The vase of crimson Spider Orchids is hard to miss when entering or exiting the Hume Highway onto Albury’s East Street. Reaching towards the skies, the galvanised steel flowers are delicate in their appearance and light up when the sun goes down. If you want to see the endangered orchids in the flesh, during spring, walk through Nail Can Hill and keep your eyes peeled.
When strolling down Wodonga’s High Street, keep an eye out for the wombats and echidnas that make an appearance, or the horse that proudly stands in Richardson Park. Worth a social post, or a climb, if you have young ones.
And we haven’t even mentioned our galleries, the art featured on café walls or the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk, featuring eleven sculptures created by local indigenous artists.
