Wagirra Trail and Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk

The Wagirra Trail links Horseshoe Lagoon with the South Albury Trail at the Union Bridge. There are many places to stop and picnic or just enjoy the tranquillity of the Murray River.

A two metre wide shared pathway meanders through the riverside parks (Noreuil, Australia, and Hovell Tree), past the Adventure Playspace at Oddies Creek, Albury Swim Centre, through Padman Park and west of Kremur Street (3.2km) to Wonga Wetlands. The last section of the trail, from Kremur Street to Wonga Wetlands is sealed.

The Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk (commencing Kremur Street – 5.3km) features a series of stunning contemporary Aboriginal sculptures lining the Wagirra Trail from Kremur Street to Wonga Wetlands. Eleven sculptures created by local Aboriginal artists have been installed along the five kilometres of trail.

The Wagirra Trail also links to the Bungambrawatha Creek Trail, West Albury Trail, South Albury Trail and beyond to the Albury– Thurgoona Trail.

Vertical Message Sticks

Traditionally messages were painted and inscribed on a stick, which was then transported by hand. Typical messages inscribed on the stick by painting, carving or burning would be announcements of ceremonies, disputes, invitations, warnings, meetings, events and happenings.
