Lonely Planet review

Chaffey’s grand homestead, the historic Queen Anne–style Rio Vista, has been beautifully preserved and restored, with each room set up as a series of historical displays depicting colonial life in the 19th century, including period furnishings, costumes, photos and a collection of letters and memorabilia.

At the time of writing, the Mildura Arts Centre, in the same complex, was closed for extensive redevelopment and due to reopen in late 2011. It combines a modern-art gallery with changing exhibitions and a theatre.
