What you can look forward to in Mildura
Mildura is many things all at once. It’s part of the wild Australian outback, yet blessed with Mediterranean climates and brimming with the creature comforts and tantalising tastes of Aussie townships.
The Murray River is the lifeblood of Mildura, a wide swathe of water descending from the Australian Alps that passes through the township on its way to the Southern Ocean at Goolwa and Coorong near Adelaide. From paddleboats and paddlesteamers, kayaking and canoeing to fishing and cruising, there is an abundance of activities to be enjoyed at the river.
Another key component of Mildura’s personality is its cuisine. Due to the weather conditions, the city has become something of a hotspot for gourmet food in Australia. Notably, ‘Feast Street’ (technically Langtree Avenue) is a strip of dining establishments known throughout the state for excellence. Check out the beautiful Chateau Mildura Winery or Trentham Estate Winery for a taste of the drop the region is so famed for, and keep an eye out for the bi-monthly Saturday farmers’ markets for fresh produce such as almonds, olives and pistachios. You will certainly get plenty of use from your Mildura car rental.
Mildura’s biggest annual events are a nod to the region’s specialities. The Wentworth Arts Festival early in the year showcases comedy, cinema, music, exhibitions, performing and visual arts, while the Mildura 100 Ski Race claims the title of the world’s fastest ski race and occurs each year at Easter on the Murray River. In November, the Jazz Food & Wine Festival brings a bouquet of tastes and sounds to the township.
