Benefits of working and living in Mildura
Welcome to Mildura Rural City, where the winters are mild and the summers are sunny—the warmest climate in Victoria.
This is a rapidly growing municipality that includes Mildura itself and the communities of Red Cliffs, Merbein, Irymple, Ouyen and Murrayville. Known for its significant natural assets, the region has a rich indigenous cultural history.
Set on the banks of the magnificent Murray River, Mildura has something for everyone.
For the foodies, there's world-class cuisine served with small town hospitality, there are local produce markets and award-winning wines. For people looking for the slow lane, we have luxury houseboats to drift away on, there are golf courses and kayaks and internationally recognised national parks to explore. Like things a little faster? Speedboats, jet-skis, wake-boarding, water skiing, motor-sports, we have it all. Explore Mildura from the air, from the water, from the red earth from which the region gets its name. We have great weather - think the Mediterranean - so any time of the year is the right time to come to Mildura.
Find a secluded spot beside the river, watch the sunset and then wait for the magical star show to begin. Get up the next morning and watch the sunrise Mallee style.
We have a thriving retail centre, with unique stores, cafes and restaurants, we have a stunning inland beach, complete with a Life Saving Club. We have a children's water-park in a stunning river setting and we are the gateway to the outback. Base yourself in Mildura and explore Mungo, the Pink Lakes of the Murray Sunset National Park. Slow, fast, river, land. We have you covered.
