Welcome to Mildura
On the banks of the Murray River, sunny Mildura is a leafy oasis enlivening an often very dry surrounding region. Now a cosmopolitan and bustling provincial city, Mildura also celebrates its historic roots in the grand old era of hardworking pastoralists. Other highlights for travellers include heritage art-deco buildings and some of provincial Victoria's best cafes and restaurants. Explore nearby wilderness national parks and go fishing, swimming, canoeing, waterskiing or houseboating on the Murray River. Other activities include paddle-steamer cruises or negotiating riverside golf courses. Expect warm and sunny weather, even in midwinter, and blue-sky days throughout the year. Note that in January and February, the temperature can regularly exceed 40°C.
The Mildura region is the traditional homeland of the Latje Latje and Paakantyi peoples.
