Overview

Mildura

Step onto the edge of the Australian outback and into an oasis by the Murray River, boasting Mediterranean-style sunshine and a laid-back outdoor lifestyle. Hit the water on a paddleboat or sample the region's famous food and wine. Explore the vibrant local culture or venture out into the ancient landscapes of Mungo National Park.

Gourmands and bon vivants

Head down to Langtree Avenue, nicknamed 'Feast Street', one of Victoria's renowned dining strips. Sample a brew at the famous Mildura Brewery or fill up on Thai, Italian, Spanish or Modern Australian.

Visit the Chateau Mildura winery, taste varietals from across the region at the Sunraysia Cellar Door, or pop into nearby Trentham Estate for a relaxing lunch by the water. 

Mildura is also the home of chef Stefano de Pieri, whose cookbooks, television programs and MasterChef guest appearances, have helped boost Mildura's culinary reputation. Awarded two hats by The Age Good Food Guide, de Pieri's iconic restaurant Stefano's is a must during your visit to Mildura.

Getting together

Celebrate Mildura's rich cultural identity and kick up your heels at festivals throughout the year. The Mildura Jazz Food and Wine Festival offers the chance for foodies and music lovers to come together while the Mildura Writers Festival, the Mildura Summer Music Festival and Mildura Arts Festival showcase creative talent from across the country. 

Full steam ahead

Take off on a nineteenth century paddle steamer cruise or captain your own houseboat, making the occasional stop on sandy river beaches to experience the bliss of river life.

The Mildura 100 is an exciting pro waterskiing event that draws thousands to the region each year. Watch the pros, and then try it yourself at one of the local outlets.

Dawn and dusk in the Outback

Witness the lush, green countryside stretch into the vast Australian and explore the sand hills of Mungo National Park, an ancient environment containing some of Australia's most significant Indigenous sites. Take in the outback scenery of the Mallee and be amazed by striking sunsets at Hattah-Kulkyne and Murray-Sunset national parks.
