Great place for a picnic with BBQ and nice park. Great when there's heaps of rain and they open the gates. No fishing allowed on wall and park. Up the road is the caravan park with great shop for ice creams and coffees. Nice day trip or good walk along bridge. Lots of people bring their dogs for a walk

A walk around the mighty Murray River and this Dam is a great way to spend a few hours next time you are visiting Albury.

Hume dam was built in the mid 1900's as a key part of the Murray river irrigation program. The dam is located about 20km east of Albury and well worth a visit. There are cafes, BBQ and picnic areas offering plenty of shade in summer located near the dam wall. I visited early November the dam was full to capacity... More

This was a lovely place to picnic. The grounds were well maintained - a credit to whoever does them! The view is beautiful and there are shady trees for sunny days!

Stayed at the caravan park and had coffees and fish and chips from the cafe. Great service from staff who are proud of what they are doing. Godd value cafe meals served quickly and very tasty. Loved the flathead tails and chips.

Not only do you get great views, but there are plenty of spots to go walking and bike riding. Plenty of nice spots to set up a picnic. You can even go down and per into the working of the turbines.
