With a regional population of 50,000, of which nearly 5% are indigenous, Mildura is based on the traditional lands of the Latji Latji, Yerre Yerre and Wergaia peoples of Victoria and the Paakanjti, Mutthi Mutthi and Nygiampaa peoples of New South Wales.
This cosmopolitan location has a Mediterranean climate and a multicultural vibe with around 20% of the population speaking a language other than English at home.
Here you can indulge in water sports and the fabulous river lifestyle of paddle steamers, houseboats and fishing.
Known as the centre of Victoria’s Food Bowl, Mildura is a major producer of citrus fruits and wine, supplying 80% of Victoria’s grapes and 70% of Australia’s dried vine fruits. This draws many migrant and seasonal workers to the region. Mildura is home to many great wineries, cafés, fine dining, fashion, art and culture.
Established in 1887, the town features many outstanding buildings of historical and architectural significance – and worthy attractions in their own right.
Approximately 6 hours’ drive north of Melbourne, Mildura’s airport is the third busiest airport in Victoria with multiple daily flights to and from Melbourne and direct flights to other locations in Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales. A train with connecting bus service is also available from Melbourne.
