Wonga Wetlands, downstream from Albury along the floodplain of the Murray River, is one of the city's must-see destinations. 

An ecosystem of lagoons and billabongs covering around 80 hectares, Wonga Wetlands is a haven for wildlife and a mecca for birdwatchers, photographers, bushwalkers and families.

Wiradjuri campsite

The Wiradjuri Cultural and Education Centre is an Indigenous campsite established by the local Wiradjuri people that helps visitors to better understand Wiradjuri history and culture.

It is a working campsite, set out according to tradition, with areas for cooking, sleeping, tool making and rock art, as well as a ceremony/dancing circle. For visitors there are signs explaining the various components of the site.

The development of the Wiradjuri Cultural and Education Centre was made possible by a grant from the New South Wales Government and a great deal of work and support from AlburyCity.

Groups (including school groups) and individuals are welcome to visit the campsite and the Wiradjuri display in the Wonga Wetlands visitors centre at any time. Guided tours and ceremonies can be arranged by appointment.

To keep the wetlands wildlife safe and unharassed, we ask visitors to stay on the marked trails and follow the guidelines signposted.

  • Be careful and quiet so as not to disturb birds and other wildlife
  • Do not feed the birds
  • Wear suitable footwear at all times, particularly in warmer months
  • Be sun smart
  • Do not bring pets or bicycles onto the wetlands
