Holiday tempters for kids and families around Mildura

Kids fun on the Murray

Another great thing about the Murray and Mallee is how child friendly we all are.

We love kids to play and explore our region and you'll find a host of things that will keep children entertained while they learn about our great river region. You can also find some great budget things to do yet still have yourself a good family holiday. This includes history walks, playgrounds, fishing (permit for NSW/VIC), camping, interactive centres and more.

Enjoy the fun of Mildura, Wentworth and surrounds

The Commemorative Garden comprises a granite sculpture and observation seat, with the inscription “Memento Matrem”, Latin for “Remember the Mother”.
