Albury - The Wagirra Trail



At present, 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 2.5 metres wide and is sealed making it accessible to users of all skill levels.

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 long-term project to link Albury's central riverside areas to Lake Hume along a 70 kilometre trail. The current priority is to provide a continuous 15km trail from Mungabareena Reserve to Wonga Wetlands, incorporating the central riverside parks at Noreuil.

Eleven sculptures created by local Aboriginal artists have been installed along the five kilometres of Wagirra trail between Kremur Street and Wonga Wetlands. The sculptures are accompanied by interpretative panels and videos via smartphone which tell the story of Aboriginal history and the cultural significance of the Murray River.

The Wagirra Trail offers a leisurely walk or energetic run along the banks of the Murray River in Albury. The trails name 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 two-metre wide pathway meanders through Albury's riverside parks enabling users to stop for a picnic, enjoy the adventure playground at Oddies Creek Park, or take in the spectacular views of the Murray River at every bend. Once on the track, you will pass river red gums which are over 400 years old and plain trees which beautifully line the entrance roads to the parklands.
