For centuries, the Albury Wodonga area was known as Bungambrawatha, or homeland, by the Wiradjuri people who first settled there. It wasn’t until 1838, it changed names. While Wodonga, meaning bulrushes, still retains its indigenous name.
As a massive water system in a huge dry land, the Murray was and remains a powerful source of life. Which is why the Wiradjuri were frequently joined by many other hunting groups, from the surrounding mountains and flatlands, who would travel hundreds of kilometres to gather there, establishing an important place for meetings, a tradition that continues to this day.
Albury is a vibrant regional city. Located at the centre of the Sydney-Melbourne-Adelaide triangle, Albury is the major retail, commercial, administrative and cultural centre for the greater Albury Wodonga region, home to more than 170,000 residents.
Against the backdrop of agricultural land around the Albury district, Carbon Farmers of Australia hosts the National Carbon Farming Conference & Expo.
