1856 The Original Wodonga post office
opened on June 1, 1856
1860 Wodonga founded as a customs post
with its twin city Albury, on the other side of the Murray River. Wodonga grew after the opening of the first bridge across the Murray River. It had previously been regarded as the smaller, less prosperous cousin of the two. Whilst still somewhat smaller than Albury, economic growth in both areas has ameliorated such distinctions.
Originally named Wodonga, it's name was changed to Belvoir then later back to Wodonga.
