Hume and Hovell Track Stories - Doctors Point Community

Albury's Doctors Point is uniquely located at the end of Eastern Hill in the embrace of the Murray River as it sweeps around from Mungabareena to Gateway island.

The McAuley's purchased their property at Doctors Point in the first auction of sites there by the Albury Wodonga Development Corporation. Over the years they have transformed it from a farm paddock to a haven for native birds, while Doctors Point has become a close-knit community. 

We interviewed Ann McAuley about their experiences of Doctors Point over the thirty-odd years they have lived there. This is her story.
