Profile

Wodonga is the twin city to Albury in New South Wales. The cities together form a major growth centre which services a wide rural hinterland in both Victoria and New South Wales. 

Wodonga's major residential growth complements Albury's retail and commercial focus. The main industry is food manufacturing, and together with retail trade, these two areas are the regions largest employers.

The area also boasts an enviable climate of hot, dry summers, perfect autumns and springs and cool winters. 

Wodonga is part of the Regional City council grouping and can be compared with similar councils. More information on council groupings can be found here

Finances

Source: Victoria Grants Commission.
The figures in the bottom two rows of the table show combined one-off and ongoing funding received by council from both the Federal and State Governments. It is important to note that this amount can change significantly from year to year as individual government funding programs change and natural events such as fires and floods occur.

Data shows the amount allocated in respect of the relevant financial year. In some years, that amount will vary from the payments received that year, as a result of the Commonwealth "bringing forward" some payments.
