More on Wodonga

Wodonga began as a customs post for the ferry crossing the Murray River from Albury. As traffic increased, the ferry service was eventually replaced by a bridge across the Murry in 1860. Though originally named Wodonga, it was for a while renamed Belvoir before it reverted to its original name. Overshadowed in size and significance by Albury, Wodonga was once called by locals as "Struggle Town".

Today Wodonga has a diverse economy. Among the businesses operating here includes LOGIC, a logistics company, Mars Corporation's pet food factory, a cattle market, an abattoir, and others. The city's railway station is on the Melbourne-Sydney railway line. A new railway line was completed in late 2010 running from Sydney to Melbourne through Wodonga.
