Albury Riverside Precinct

This multi-million dollar project will provide spectacular riverside experiences including boardwalks, a floating dock, car parking, lighting, landscaping and new pathways along the river’s edge behind the Albury Swim Centre.

About this project

The Albury Riverside Precinct is one of the four major projects we are delivering in partnership with the NSW Government under the Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund (RGETF). All projects improve our connection with the Murray River and will be ready for us to enjoy by mid 2021.

This project will transform a section of the river behind the Albury Swim Centre at Hovell Tree Park and will change the way both residents and visitors interact with the Murray River and its surrounding open space. The scope of works for the project includes the development of the following public infrastructure:

  • A boardwalk along the river
  • Jetty access and a mooring point
  • Formalising access to the river in specific areas
  • BBQs and picnic facilities
  • Built shade structures
  • Better car parking
  • Improved links with the Wagirra Trail, CBD and Hovell Tree Park.

This project is currently in the detailed design phase. A series of approvals will be required following the detailed design. Construction is expected to commence early in 2021.

Council has included funding for the construction phase in the 2020-21 budget. The funding proposed is:

  • $3,900,000 - 2020-21 (Stages 1 and part 2a)
  • $2,180,000 - 2021-22 (Balance Stage 2a and 2b)
  • $490,000 - 2022 - 23 (Stage 3)
