Mildura is situated just near the place where two great Australian rivers converge: the mighty River Murray and the famous River Darling. There’s no denying that the river is the real lifeblood of the area. It’s a constant source of water, a resource that thanks to the Chaffey brothers in the 1880s, has been harnessed for a variety of agricultural purposes. George and William Chaffey established Australia’s first irrigation colony by developing a series of steam-driven pumps to lift water from the river and irrigate up to 33,000 acres. Today this irrigation is as vital as ever – without it all growing would cease. Ask any local and they’ll probably tell you that the River and its environment is the best thing about Mildura. That, and of course, the climate.
