Mildura is the heart of an expansive wine and fruit growing region, and a great place for your next holiday. The region is renowned for its long tradition of producing and serving fine food and wine at iconic restaurants, farmers’ markets, gourmet eateries and cellar doors.

A modern regional city, Mildura stands on the Victorian side of the Murray River, one of the world’s longest navigable rivers, which runs 2700 kilometres from the Snowy Mountains to South Australia. Get in, on or beside the river – swim at a white-sand beach, paddle through wetlands or board an historic paddleboat to travel up the river.

With a reputation for its mild climate, comfortable accommodation and friendly locals Mildura is a welcoming inland oasis.
