Where is Mildura?

Mildura is a major regional city on the Murray River. It is located in the far north west of Victoria and is the centre of the Sunraysia region. Mildura and the surrounding district is an oasis in the desert and a very popular riverside tourist resort. Mildura was, with Renmark (SA), one of the first Irrigation colonies set up in the late 1880's through the vision of Alfred Deakin, who became Australia's second Prime Minister. Deakin encouraged the development of the semi arid region into fruit production through irrigation. The produce had to be dried to allow it to be transported to the distant markets by paddle steamer to Echuca and then by rail to Melbourne.

As well as a popular tourist destination, Mildura boasts the production of a major proportion of the nation's wine grapes, dried fruit and citrus. It has large wineries and processing plants for its produce. Mildura is 550 kms north west of Melbourne, 1050 kms south west of Sydney and 450 kms north east of Adelaide. Includes Irymple, Merbein, Nichols Point and Red Cliffs.
