Located firmly in inland Australia, Albury grew into a municipality, a regional city and a growth centre within a rural context. It has been consistently promoted as a mix of the best of city and country. As long-term Mayor, Cleaver Bunton, was fond of declaiming, Albury was ‘a city with all the amenities for the modern metropolis and yet retaining the charm of country living’. In tracing ten stages of settlement then town/ city development, (five before and five during the twentieth century) I explore in this paper how an urban place set in country Australia was cultivated.
