"Albury, on the NSW/Vic border" Albury by Kate-Me

Albury Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 42 photos

The city of Albury is situated on the border between Victoria and New South Wales, on the main highway leading to Sydney.

The Ettamogah Pub is located just off the highway, about 20 kms north of the City and I visited it in 2005.
The Etttamogah Pub was purpose built as a tourist attraction and iconic pub - a tribute I guess to 'fair dinkum aussie pubs' and the humour they contain, particularly in remote and outback areas.

It has a working bar, restaurant, souvenir shop and other buildings, and plenty of funny signs, props, notices, cartoons and the like to amuse.

To me, it's very 70s/80s, when more pubs were like this - humourous, and the type of humour to me comes from that period, when Australians were less cultured, a bit more crude, and always on for a joke (some things haven't changed).

My latest visit was for 2 days in March 2015.
