    The Hume Dam, when looking at it, seems enormous. Its total length 1 616 m. The total surface area when full is 20.2 square kms.

    It was built between 1919 and 1936 and is located immediately below the junction of the Murray and Mitta Mitta Rivers.
    The dam also has a hydro electric power generator.

    The Ettamogah pub is worth visiting for a look around, or a drink or a meal.
    Just reading all the humourous signs keeps people busy for ages.
    Over the years they've developed the complex further to have an outside bar as well, which seems to be an old barn, used in the evenings & probably for functions.
    There are also some other buildings which seem to be shops, and a few fake town buildings like the police station building here (blow it up to read the signs).

    We've eaten at this restaurant the last couple of times we've been driving through to Sydney, and found it great both times.

    For a fairly budget restaurant (man meals around $12-$18) the service was really excellent - attentive, and our waiter had a good sense of humour when my husband asked him if the old lady who kept coming in and out of the kitchen and checking on things was his mother (adding that she looked like the old woman from the Kumars on tv, which she really did!)

    There's even an old indian man in a turban (perhaps the father of somebody working in the restaurant) who wanders up and down the street outside the restaurant, asking people coming out if they enjoyed their meal.
    Rather unique service.

    On the restaurant walls are framed certificates - seems they've won quite a few local awards for their restaurant.

    The restaurant is also BYO (bottled wine only)

    Favorite Dish: I think I had the lamb rogan josh last time, and it was rather delicious.
    My husband found his vegetarian meal to be quite delicious.

    Favorite thing: We didn't have a lot of time to spend in Albury, so we mainly enjoyed taking a 1 hour walk/wander in the city centre, admiring some buildings, checking out a few shops and op shops (of which Albury has quite a few).
