Albury sits on the northern bank of the Murray River, on the main Hume Highway route between Sydney and Melbourne. Much more than a stop-off between these two great cities, restaurants in Albury now serve a growing number of visitors who are attracted to the outstanding natural beauty of the area, the surrounding vineyards and an exciting cultural scene. The city is a magnet for lovers of the great outdoors, with lots of sports and activities to enjoy. For example, Lake Hume and the Murray River are excellent for watersports, with sailing, kayaking, water skiing, and fishing all on offer. Hiking in the hills is also a joy but all that physical activity is sure to build up an appetite and that's where the fine restaurants of Albury can help.
