Bowna: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Ettamogah Pub Albury


Stop, shake off the dust and visit the iconic Ettamogah Pub. Based upon Ken Maynard's cartoons, the original Ettamogah Pub is situated 15 kilometres north of Albury on the Hume Highway, an easy drive from the city.

Creating a unique and enjoyable environment, visitors to the pub are welcome to explore the pub and its walls of cartoon or wander through the cartoon inspired gardens, complete with a tree jail and other zany Ettamogah scenes and characters.

The venue hosts live music events along with car park markets regularly (second, fourth and fifth Sunday of the month). Housing a bar, cafe and restaurant, the pub can cater for groups of all sizes with a range of souvenirs and merchandise available.

The word "ettamogah" is Aboriginal for "place of good drink". How very appropriate!

Wymah Museum


Wymah was a pioneer settlement with a small thriving township in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It featured one of the earliest ferry river crossings which conveyed both people and livestock. Nothing remains of the township except the Victoria Pub (now Fairview), opposite the original ferry crossing and the school and school house. The original pioneer families still farm the area and their histories are highlighted in the museum's many displays.

The museum offers a selection of rotating local themes and includes pioneer family history and research facilities, the history of the Wymah Ferry, Wymah School History, the rise and decline of the Wymah township, and many more.
