A slice of history

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

Very interesting to follow this historical trail. The trail is well laid out and the major points easy to find.

The Chaffey trail is quite extensive and very informative, a great trail if you are interested in the beginnings of Mildura area

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.

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.
