Wodonga Region Local History

The original inhabitants of the Wodonga Region were the Wiradjuri Aboriginal people.

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.

1870s Wodonga Historical Society

suggests that Peter M'Lean opened his general store in the 1870s (see image)

1907 Wodonga's first hospital

(see image)opened in a generous and spacious brick villa known as Cambourne. It was leased by nurse Dunphy and met what was reported as a long felt need.
