In 1824, explorers Hume and Hovell’s journey was briefly paused as they built a raft of sorts to cross the Murray river and continue. They forged a path then widely used for transport and stock between Sydney and Port Phillip bay, and Robert Brown founded the town. Paddle-steamers worked the river and the train line also made Albury the hub for interstate travel.

The town has grown to cover the valley floor, with satellite suburbs like Lavington and Thurgoona become absorbed by, or growing closer to the grid of streets you see in the photo. A border town, the river crossing takes you to Victoria with a new town, council, laws and politics in Wodonga. Together their populations make Albury/Wodonga the largest inland city.
