Australian Towns & Cities
Victoria: Mildura
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Mildura, Victoria's most northern city is located on the Sturt & Calder Highways against the Murray River and is the main centre in the Sunraysia Region.

The city is somewhat of an oasis as it is in the centre of an irrigated fertile district surrounded by dry, arid saltbush country. With its picturesque river setting and dry & relatively warm winters, Mildura has become a surprisingly popular holiday destination.

The city was settled in the late 1880's after a successful irrigation scheme was put into place to open the surrounding countryside up for farmland. Today, Mildura and its environs still depend on the local fruit, vegetable and crop growing industries but the city has grown more recently due to steadily increasing tourism and because of its key highway position. The city itself is superb - the western entrance on the Sturt Highway is a wide, tree lined boulevard; has an impressive shopping precicnt & CBD and several great parks & gardens abut the Murray River. Also in the area is the Murray-Sunset National Park, Lock 11, river cruises and the Golden River Zoo. A recommended spot to visit.
