The Mildura region is growing rapidly, includes a number of smaller communities and extends to both Victorian and New South Wales sides of the Murray River.
A geographical diversity extends from dryland farming to irrigated horticulture, the Murray River and wetlands to Mallee scrub and the World Heritage listed Willandra Lakes and Mungo National Park.
The district produces hundreds of millions of dollars in export revenue through sustainable, clean and green horticulture. Significant commodities include dried fruits, olives, grains, vegetables, citrus, table grapes and wine.
Positioned near the borders of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, on the crossroads of transport links between three capital cities and the meeting point of Australia’s two great rivers, the region’s strategic location continues to aid development and provides a distinctive regional flavour.
There are significant education and health services including university and TAFE institutions, and a number of hospitals and medical services for the wellbeing of our community.
The people in our region are culturally diverse, and along with a vibrant street life, local produce and strong arts community produce a unique cosmopolitan feel.
The Mildura region’s climate is sunny all year around with mild winters and warm summers.
