Schedule a pit-stop at Oaklands, 100km from Albury, for a glimpse of real small-town life. In the heart of cropping country, the small township of Oaklands is an absolute gem. If you're travelling the Murray River Road in a campervan or RV, this town pulls out all the stops to make your visit super easy with RV parking and dump points.
Meals at the pub or club are generous and you’ll easily strike up a conversation with a local, making this a quirky detour off the main road, or an easy stopover if you're headed for the water up at Urana. If you see people gathered around a plant in the middle of town taking photos, you’ve hit upon the rare Oaklands Orchid. Flowering in November and December, this is a highly endangered flower only found in this area. Don’t pick it!
