Step onto the edge of the Australian outback and into an oasis by the Murray River. Surrounded by pretty citrus groves and vineyards, Mildura offers endless sunshine, great food and wine, and abundant water-based activities.
Local personalities, local delicacies
Renowned for fine food and wine, Mildura is the home of celebrity restaurateur, Stefano de Pieri. Thanks to his range of cookbooks, his Gondola on the Murray and Stefano's Cooking Paradiso television programs, and recent Masterchef appearances, the town has developed a reputation for excellent food and the quality and diversity of its produce.
All hail the Murray
The Murray River itself is a major draw and a great destination for a water-based holiday. Captain your own houseboat, enjoy a cruise on a historic old paddle steamer, glide around in a canoe, swim, water-ski or just soak up the sun on a river beach.
Beyond the lush, green countryside of the riverbanks stretches the vast Australian outback. Explore the sand hills of Mungo National Park, a sublime, ancient environment containing some of Australia's most significant Indigenous sites. Visit the Mallee with its abundant wildlife and rugged outback scenery and be amazed by striking sunsets at national parks like Hattah-Kulkyne and Murray-Sunset.
