On the banks of the Murray River, under huge old red gums, Sunraysia Farmers' Market is not just a revelation of local produce but a wonderful twice-monthly social event.The market is dedicated to the huge array of local produce available. All stalls are run by the grower or cook, offering local grapes and tomatoes, garlic, wood-fired breads, conserves, cakes, oils, fresh vegetables and wide variety of fruits.Whether it's a balmy Mildura summer evening with pelicans drifting by on the river and a festive air for a steak sandwich between stall visits or a stunning winter sun morning when a hearty breakfast and coffee is just the ticket before picking up some sun-dried orange or home-made falafel, the Sunraysia Farmers' Market is an idyllic and vibrant occasion.. sunraysiafarmersmarket.com.a...

'Cobden Air' provides alternative air tours by chartered aircraft, Cobden chartered tours and flights depart from most Australian airports. Mildura has friendly people, and is renowned for fresh produce, situated in Northern Victoria along the Murray River and just twenty minutes drive to historical Wentworth. Mildura was once a sheep station, a dry dust bowl, infested with rabbits, until the late 1800 when the Chaffey brothers introduced Irrigation from the Murray River. The Murray ran dry in the early 1900 causing some average blokes around to suggest they harness the water by building Locks along the river thus ensuring a continual flow when the good Lord didn't send the rain for a time. Now we have both desert and green patches which look like a giant patchwork quilt from the air. Th... Read more
