Wodonga, Victoria

From Temora NSW we headed in Winter 2019 to Wodonga in Victoria, you just keep driving through the border, there is a small sign when coming into Victoria that says, Welcome to Victoria, if you blinked you would miss the sign.
It's about a 2 hour 40 minute drive which is just a nice drive for the day.
We headed to a different Caravan Park in Wodonga where we stayed the very first time we came to Wodonga some years prior, the caravan was nice and had different managers.

It was washing day, even though clothesline were provided near the laundry I preferred to do my washing in my washing machine in the caravan and my husband put the clothes line up under the awning. 
There are 3 photos of the caravan park.




 


Went for a drive to Albury which is in NSW just over the border from Wodonga in Victoria, the two towns are called Twin Cities.
Photos from inside the vehicles to show the beautiful trees in Albury NSW.

  1. Being away from home does not mean "being away" from domestic duties. : ))

  2. Very enjoyable to see your part of the world Margaret. I have very happy memories of our holidays in caravan parks. The one you shared is lovely and thank you for the map, I always love to see where places are.

    1. Always good to have nice memories of past times.
      Often put a map for those that don't know where I was only holiday, so then they can relate to a major city via the map.

  3. What a beautiful area you found. I love the trees, they offer lots of shade in your hot weather season.

    1. It was rather warm there from memory for a few days that we were there, the trees were good and we was parked under some branches, it's good they check the trees and branches so it's relatively safe.

  4. Hello Margaret,
    Wonderful to see the stop on this place. Great with the lines of trees along the way.
    And of course a wash day must also be done.

    Warm regards,
    Marco

  5. These days I mostly hear the twin cities spoken of as Albury/Wondonga rather than given their individual names.
    That caravan park looks good.
    The domestic duties thing comes along for the trip doesn't it?

    1. Yes, most people say Albury/Wondonga but then we have to explain which city we are staying in, comes easy as you get used to it.
      Always washing and cleaning to do, not matter what.

  6. El tiempo coampaña, para que se seque la ropa. Al tenderla en ese lugar, la tienes más cerca para recogerla.

    1. Don't have to walk very far at all when hung underneath the awning.
      I do have a small clothes line that goes into the ground if I have a heap of washing.

  7. The caravan park looks neat.
    The hanging clothes offer a touch of home, sweet home.

    1. Yes, home sweet home and it's washing and cleaning, it certainly does feel more at home when having to do those things.

  8. The trees are nice. I am just wondering if they have dropped the fruit check and confiscation at the border?

    1. No, we never see a fruit check, a bin or anything the way we go, of course you do if going west.

    1. No we don't Jo-Anne, even if we stay at Motels there is always personal washing to be done.

  10. I think it is mostly referred to by the twin names.
    It also has a large army training base - I believe recruits start off at the
    one at Wagga and then depending what arm of the army, they go to various other
    training locations. I think the Wodonga one is the transport arm??????
    Great photos as always Margaret

    1. The cities are Colin referred to by their names with Albury being first in line.
      Wasn't aware there was army training there, knowing me I could have seen it and not taken any notice.
      Thanks.

    2. Curiosity got the best of me. It is the logistics base.
      Here is the link for information.

    1. Another thing about signs is when a truck is in the way then you don't see the sign at all.
