This fast growing regional centre is surrounded by a huge variety of irrigated agricultural crops, predominately vines, making it a frequently visited desert oasis.
Appropriately named Victoria's "Clean & Green Food Bowl", the area produces vast quantities of wines, table grapes and dried vine fruit along with numerous other crops like asparagus, almonds, olives, citrus, pistachios & carrots.
Dryland farming of the outer region along with the diversity of the irrigation crops creates a most spectacular combination of patchwork fields
to explore all year round.
A major innovative solar plant just out of Mildura, has been "turned on" and connected to the National Energy Grid mid 2013 harnessing one of our most recognised local assets...the Sun!
