The culmination of the online 46th Border Music Camp will be a virtual concert this weekend. Instead of local and visiting campers being based at The Scots School Albury this week, all events were conducted via the Border Music Camp website and Facebook page. The Mega Online Virtual Massed Choir runs from 7pm. T-shirts marking the "missing" 46th Border Music Camp have been ordered by campers in NSW, Victoria, Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, ACT and Singapore!

With the border between NSW and Victoria now closed for the first time in more than 100 years due to the COVID-19 spike in Melbourne, Wodonga Place is home to the police checkpoint. Albury-Wodonga residents can secure a permit at Service NSW. It allows residents to go about their work and daily business within 50 kilometres of their home. Beyond that, NSW residents would need to self-isolate for 14 days on their return home from Victoria.
Start the weekend off right with a properly brewed coffee at the farmers' market. Then stock up on fruit and vegetables, fresh herbs, tomatoes, honey, free-range pork, lamb, kimchi, artisan cheese, bread and pastries, locally-roasted coffee beans, pasture-raised free-range eggs, small goods, smoked meats and trout and preserves.
