Everything’s coming up roses for Sydney and NSW in general. In case you missed it, Manly Beach was recently voted among the best in the world. In another win for NSW, Wotif has named NSW border town Albury as the best in Australia in its Aussie Town of the Year Awards.
“With incredible outdoor experiences, awesome wineries and bars, excellent restaurants, and some of the best galleries, museums, theatres and festivals around, it’s a must-visit,” Wotif said about the quaint town that rests on the banks of the historic Murray River.
Combining heritage with modern facilities, Albury has quietly become a hot destination for its food, museums, theatres, natural landscapes and all the countryside vibes.
“Albury is both cosmopolitan and laidback, culturally connected and naturally abundant. Visitors can share in our stories at our surprising variety of galleries, museums, theatres and festivals,” Albury city Mayor Kylie King said.
The Wotif Aussie Town of the Year Awards considers accommodation, affordability, quality, and traveller satisfaction as the metrics to determine trending Aussie destinations every year. Bundaberg in Queensland and New Norfolk in Tasmania rounded out the top 3 on the list. The seaside town of Merimbula, NSW also made the cut at number 6 along with popular country town Orange at number 9. Gotta love NSW!
