Contact Wonga Wetlands

A sanctuary for birdwatchers, field naturalists, photographers and bushwalking groups. Wandering through Wonga Wetlands is an idyllic way to wind down and enjoy nature. Wonga is also a remarkable educational experience for school and special interest groups.

Located on the Murray River floodplain, Wonga Wetlands is being gently restored from grazing land using Albury City's environmentally treated wastewater. An ecosystem of lagoons and billabongs covering 80 hectares of Murray River flood plain, Wonga is home to a variety of wildlife and century old river red gums and an Indigenous scar tree.

In Winter you'll find the wetlands full to capacity. Pelicans and Swans love this time of year. Over Spring the water starts to recede exposing muddy shorelines which attracts hundreds of wading birds. During Summer the water levels reduce and may dry out completely and as Autumn arrives and temperatures drop the wetlands are again flooded and life begins all over.
