The Mildura has a long tradition in growing oranges and grapes. The origins of the name Mildura are the subject of several differentories. Mildura' s étymology is not certain, however, because in some locals the words mill and dura have different meaning. Aborigines used to live near Mildura because of the abundance of nourishment.
From 1877 to 1884, a great Victorian aridity caused Alfred Deakin, then Secretary of State and Chair of a Royal Commission for the Provision of Waters, to travel to California's irrigated areas. It destroyed the ranchers, especially those living just to the south of the Murray. In the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars, Mildura saw a large flow of immigrants, particularly from the Mediterranean and Europe, Italy and Greece among them.
There was a contentious suggestion in 2004 by the Viktorian government to construct a state Long Term Containment Facility (LTCF) for industrial wastes in Nowingi, some 50 km southern of Mildura. LTCF's adversaries were pleased to accept the task of the LTCF suggestion, not only in the Mildura area and elsewhere in Victoria, but also across the frontier in Southern Australia, where there were concerns that the poisonous wastes might damage the image, if not the material, of the Murray River and thus the fruit-growing industry of the Riverlands and Murraylands.
Located on the Murray River's southwest shore, Mildura is set on plain countryside with no hill or mountain, and is bordered to the western, northern and eastern parts by beautiful Billabong and Lake Billabong areas such as Lake Hawthorn, Lake Ranfurly and Lake Gol Gol.
