Interesting history of the area

Interesting insight into the history of Mildura. Part of it is a pleasant walk along the Murray but we needed to drive to parts of it. Could easily spend a day to see it all.

If you're coming from out of town and you are not a racist I'm certain you'd be interested in learning about what is by far the most interesting aspect of Mildura's history - The local indigenous history. The Chaffey trail is a boring, white-washed shame from a bygone era. Don't bother.

We love exploring and walking around new towns but felt this walk whilst interesting, was quite long and not to scale according to the map. It was very pretty seeing the mighty Murray River and the homestead is definitely worth a visit. We did a Paddlesteamer cruise which my husband loved but I felt a 2 hour cruise was 1... More

Good, well defined walking track, peaceful surroundings. Found this track by accident - we were holidaying on a houseboat, moored for the night and I decided to go for a walk. Straight away I found what looked like a bit of a path - an hour later I'd walked all the way to Apex park and back to the boat.... More

I found the trail a tad disappointing overall. Might need a PR work over as some things like the Mildura Homstead were locked and therefore overpromised and under delivered.

Maybe Summer is a better time to enjoy this facility, although the weather was good when we visited it was a bit flat.

The Chaffey brother were Canadians who were recruited to pioneer the Sunraysia irrigation area by Alfred Deakin, one of the great men of Victorian politics. After a good start, things went badly for a while and an official inquiry blamed the Chaffey brothers, which was quie unjust. Eventually, Sunraysia flourished. Our visionaries and pioneers deserve better..

found it hard to navigate as the map is not correct on where things are and the map is not to scale which make it hard to find things on the map

The trail mainly follows the south bank of the Murray River in Mildura. It has a number of interpretive signs that explain the history of the area and clear stops to investigate (eg the old homestead, lock 11, wharf etc - see link http://www.murrayriver.com.au/the-chaffey-trail). It can be driven (best to go from west to east to keep the river to... More

The Chaffey Trail information at the Visitors Infirmation Center at Mildura is comprehensive. Among the key features of the Trail, I would classify the Arts Gallery as the best, as they had a good collection of paintings, including a Gainsborough and a Degas. The classic home Chateau Mildura which houses the Arts Center is worth a visit too. Entrance is... More
