Oasis in the sun

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.

Grazing and farming began here in the 1800s, before Mildura became Australia’s first irrigation settlement and consequently a key service and economic hub of inland Australia.

Today Mildura Rural City offers a sunny and active lifestyle, with a vibrant cultural scene, great schools and diverse employment choices. Come and experience Victoria’s top end for yourself.
