Mildura sits on the border of New South Wales and Victoria, near to South Australia, and wouldn’t be here without the majestic Murray River on which it lies, the longest river in Australia. It’s a city replete with festivals, abundant food and wine, shimmering salt pans and bushland national parks. We’ve picked out the best hotels in Mildura – including some seriously sleek houseboats – bookable on Culture Trip.
