What’s On in Mildura

We invite you to discover the real Mildura. A vast palette that stretches across the landscape – lush green farmland, shimmering salt pans, raw desert plains, towering bush land and the majestic Murray River. Mildura, with its many historical references to the life and times of our early settlers, also incorporates a widely recognized calendar of events and festivals to be enjoyed by all. Discover what there is to see and do while visiting our magnificent region!

Time is the greatest feature of a Mildura holiday – consume leisurely, rest luxuriously, participate unhurriedly and discover gradually.

Be sure to book early so you don’t miss out…
