Little choice to dine, scattered shops opens most closed, think it is not a place to visit over Easter. Least carparkimg was abundant. Lift tour game Albury and visitors go to anywhere else...reclusive
Lesson.. Check before you travel on important national holidays.
Outside major tourist precincts, the locals are likely to have gone to celebrate with family, not sit in their shops hoping a tourist might wander by.
This is true in any country, even wherever you are from.
I suggest you lift your tourism research ... it's Easter, it's a country town. Kinda self explanatory.
Although we are becoming more irreligious every year, Good Friday is the one day of the year outside of Christmas Day when every business has an excuse to have a day off. You wouldn't have had any better luck in any other country town you visited on that day.
Well, I think you will find that the tourist going elsewhere will find the same elsewhere. Outside the city a lot of places still close on public holidays. I think the poor small business owners can have one or two days a year that they get to see their own families. I would be pleasantly surprised if I found anything open anywhere on good Friday, Easter Sunday or Christmas Day.
Having done many a stay in Albury you're right. There isn't much open and thats because it isn't a tourist destination. It's a major functioning city serving the region.
Within an hour's drive you could have visited
*Rutherglen Wine region
Milawa/Oxley Gourmet food region
Chiltern for the aboriginal art and autumn foliage
Had a picnic lunch out at Lake Hume
Your kidding aren't you?
People will insist on not working on Public Holidays won't they, how rude!
I went to the Diner on Balboa Pier last May midweek and it was shut! Ruined my holiday for about 6.3 seconds but then I built a bridge, admired the view and just went somewhere else.
All the best.
