The Wagirra Trail
The Wagirra Trail extends from the Union Bridge in South Albury to Wonga Wetlands in West Albury, covering a distance of six kilometres.
The trail is sealed and accessible to users of all fitness levels, making it perfect for walking, running or cycling.
Accessing the trail
There are a number of access points along the trail with the most popular at Noreuil Park, the Kremur Street Boat Ramp, Horseshoe Lagoon and at Wonga Wetlands.
Enjoy lunch under the shade of old gum trees or a barbeque dinner at Noreuil Park as the sun sets over the water. Kids will love the nearby Oddies Creek Play Space, a modern and fully-fenced playground with a flying fox and plenty of things to climb up, under and around.
Kayaking is another accessible activity – either BYO or hire a canoe with easy access for large or small groups at the boat ramp.
Past Noreuil Park, the trail continues to the Kremur Street ramp and the beginnings of the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk. This place is truly unique where you can enjoy nature at it's best – birds, turtles, native flora and fauna – interrupted only by sites of local Wiradjuri artists work.
The Wagirra Trail is a long-term project to link Albury's central riverside areas to Lake Hume along a 70 kilometre trail. The current priority is to construct the Wagirra Trail around the perimeter of Wonga Wetlands as illustrated in the Wonga Wetlands Tourism Master Plan. This will provide an additional 12kms of trail which will take in the wonderful scenery of the Murray River around Wonga Wetlands.
The trail stops at Wonga Wetlands, an ecosystem of lagoons and billabongs covering around 80 hectares. A haven for wildlife and a mecca for birdwatchers, photographers, bushwalkers and families.
Located within Wonga Wetlands, 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.
The name Wagirra reflects the significance of the river to local Aboriginal people, and the heritage of those who have constructed it. Wagirra is a Wiradjuri word that means to "step on the ground".
The Wagirra Trail is a key action of AlburyCity's Murray River Experience Master Plan.
