How to Reach

By plane

Mildura airport is one of the largest in regional Australia. The airport services regular flights from Melbourne and Adelaide.
By train

The Mildura train station is on the corner of Langtree Avenue and 7th St. Currently, no passenger trains arrive or depart from Mildura. However, passenger lines are scheduled to reopen, but a set date has not been decided yet after delays on reopening other railway lines in Victoria.
By bus

The bus station is located next to the train station. Buses to Melbourne depart daily and run direct or to Swan Hill or Bendigo to connect with train services. Mildura is on the daily bus route from Adelaide to Sydney (via Canberra). Local buses connect Mildura with surrounding smaller towns.
By car

From Melbourne the journey time is approximately 5 - 7 hours along the Calder Highway. Journey time from Adelaide is approximately 4:30 - 5hrs. From Sydney you will be travelling via Wagga Wagga and Hay, and be prepared for a long straight drive through the Murray Outback for the best part of 12 hours (not allowing for breaks). Best to allow at least two days.

Places to Visit
  • The Murray River Still flowing strong despite drought, the Mighty Murray winds its way through the region, with the Rowing Club just a few minutes walk from the Langtree and Deakin Avenue food and entertainment district.
  • Lock 11 - Lock & Weir and Lock Island A man made island with easy walking tracks and native bushland. Camping is not permitted, but there are some good swimming sand bars. Great place to watch the big Paddle Steamers as they go through the complex Lock & Weir system. Also a good place to sit back and fish, catching stunned carp as they come through the Weir (though you're not allowed to fish too close to the weir for the unfair advantage it gives!),
  • Apex Park Apparently Australia's (or at least Victoria's) largest inland beach, Apex is a great place to swim. Its easy to find, has a huge sandbar (beach) and occasionally is even manned by lifeguards.
  • Perry Sandhills Large set of red sandhills 5km from Wentworth.
  • Mungo National Park, Mildura is a good jumping-off point for day trips to Mungo National Park, located between Mildura and Broken Hill.
