Mildura Day

On 31 May 1887, the Chaffey Brothers, the Victorian Government and Queen Victoria signed an Indenture formalising Mildura as Australia’s First Irrigation Colony.

Each year on the anniversary of this date, the district celebrates what is now known as ‘Mildura Day’.

Each year a particular theme, venue and program of events are planned to involve the public and schools in the celebrations.

It is hoped that this day will increasingly become a highlight in the local events calendar.
