Crossing Place Boxes

Crossing Place boxes relate to the social and cultural history of Albury and are designed to stimulate memories and conversation.

Enjoy a chat with family and friends over the contents of a Crossing Place box. Perfect for schools, community groups and aged care facilities, Crossing Place boxes are designed to stimulate conversation and memories, with images, text and objects relating to the cultural and social history of Albury.

Crossing Place traces the settlement of Albury by land and water. An engaging collection of objects, audio and film tell the story of Albury from first contact with the Wiradjuri people to the city we know today.

Crossing Place takes you on a journey of Albury’s growth from the river crossing point explored by Hume and Hovell into a thriving city with federal ambitions and an important role in capital city decentralisation. Weaving together items from the railway, hospital, shops, cinemas, services, sporting clubs and schools, it creates a history of urban ambition.

Our Crossing Place Syllabus will assist when planning a class visit.
