Aside from treating mum this mother’s day weekend – here are five ideas for things to do around Albury Wodonga and surrounds.
Fun Food – Community Wood Fired Oven, Albury
The Community Wood Fired Oven is a place to come together to cook, to share, to learn and to eat. Once you’ve tasted the delicious flavours of food from a wood fired oven, you’ll be hooked!
Located in Hovell Tree Park, near Albury Swim Centre, the Oven has an undercover area and a playground – everything you need for a great day out.
What to bake? Anything you bake in your oven at home you can bake in the Wood Fired Oven. This includes: pizzas, bread and damper, roast meat and vegetables, cakes, scones and biscuits, pies and quiches.
Arts & Culture – Animal Farm, Wodonga
Animal Farm is a new version of George Orwell’s political classic. All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.
Revolution is coming to Manor Farm. Under the guidance of some rebellious pigs, a group of farm animals unite to drive out their cruel human oppressors and build utopia. But the swine are not as united as they appear, and their division gives rise to a terrifying new system of power and repression.
Family Fun – Mother’s Day Sunday Funday, Wahgunyah
A special Sunday Funday at Cofield wines is designed to treat all of the beautiful mum’s out there!
Enjoy the last of the Autumn sunshine with Mum at Cofield Wines. Share with mum a drop or two of one of the region’s finest wine selections, there are special wine inspired cocktails, espresso coffee, delicious food from Phat Pizza, Smart Hospitality Paella and Milawa Cheese.
The day will feature live Music from 12:00pm, as well as a wine cocktail bar, cellar door tastings, jumping castle, face painting and giant outdoor games.
Markets – Albury Wodonga Farmers Market, Albury
This Saturday’s market is your chance to get mum the perfect Mother’s Day present.
Start your weekend with the amazing tastes, smells, sights and sounds of Albury Wodonga Farmers Market at Hovell Tree Park Albury.

Film – Australian Classic Movies, Chiltern
Take a trip down memory lane with an Australian Classic Movie at Chiltern’s Star Theatre. Screening on Saturday night is “Sunday Too Far Away” 1975 M with Jack Thompson in one of his first major roles
The move is set on an outback station in 1956, where hard-living shearers battle the clock, the sheep and each other for the position of ‘gun shearer.’ The one with the highest tally, Foley (Jack Thompson) has not been beaten in ten years, but he knows the day will come. Acclaimed for its understated realism of the work, camaraderie and general life of the shearer.
