We were informed that the Chaffey steam engine would be running at the Psyche Bend pumping station for possibly the last time as expensive maintenance was required with a lack of required funds so we went to have a look. We were very glad we did as it was a great Sunday morning trip out! To see the old steam... More

Mildura only exists thanks to the vision of the Chaffey brothers, two Canadian entrepreneurs who established Sunraysia's irrigation system. You can follow in their footstepss, and see the Chaffey mansion. It's a trail worth following.

Set along the banks of the Murray river, the trail meanders along. The homestead has photos and stories about the early days of Mildura.

Information centre map in hand and just follow the trail. Old cemetery not much to see there other than read the history board and the pump house is down a very dusty rutted road but worth the effort. The winery you could pass on as well if not into wine

I walked the trail (a bit of a hike, but I like walking). Interesting facts along the way, giving people an insight into Mildura's history.

We tracked down most of the various stopping points on the Chaffey tour over a couple of days; one on our bikes and the second in our car. The Mildura Station Homestead was open when we visited with some interesting facts and the roses were in bloom which was lovely. From here it was a short ride along the Murray... More

Follow the trail of Mildura's pioneer irrigation development. A must for any history buff or those interested in such trivia. But by the end you will be ready for a rest or afternoon tea.
