Step onto edge of the Australian outback and into an oasis by the Murray River. Mildura offers pretty citrus groves and vineyards, endless sunshine, great food and wine, and abundant water-based activities.
Make the most of the riverside setting: captain your own houseboat, enjoy a cruise on a historic old paddle steamer, paddle a canoe, swim, waterski or soak up the sun on a river beach.
Indulge in excellent food and local produce in the hometown of celebrity restaurateur Stefano de Pieri, and visit his flagship restaurant Stefano's, awarded two hats by The Age Good Food Guide.
Out of town, explore the sand hills of Mungo National Park, a sublime, ancient environment with significant Aboriginal sites. Or visit the Mallee with its abundant wildlife, rugged outback scenery at national parks like Hattah-Kulkyne and Murray-Sunset.
