Albury, a major regional city in New South Wales, Australia, is located on the Hume Highway and the northern side of the Murray River. Escape the urban bustle at Mount Buffalo National Park and Oddies Creek Playspace. Step off the beaten path and head to Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail and Burke Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Albury side-trips: Murray to Mountains Rail Trail (in Wangaratta) and Pfeiffer Wines (in Wahgunyah). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Bonegilla Migrant Experience and pause for some photo ops at Monument Hill.

Alice Springs

Situated right in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs serves as an urban oasis deep within the country’s parched, desert-like Red Center.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Ellery Creek Big Hole. Escape the urban bustle at Simpsons Gap and The Emily and Jessie Gaps Nature Park. There's still lots to do: grab your bike and head to Simpsons Gap Bicycle Path, get engrossed in the history at National Pioneer Women's Hall of Fame & Old Alice Springs Gaol, identify plant and animal life at Alice Springs Desert Park, and see the interesting displays at The Residency.
