I answered the question and my post got lost so here goes again.
Mal and I just moved to Mildura. It is a great place to live. People are laid back, weather is great. there is everything up here in the way of facilities, shopping, hospitals and transport. Cost of housing is much lower. Community spirit is alive and well with always something going on. The beautiful Murray River is here providing awsome peaceful walks along the River Banks. We absolutely love it.
By way of negative, that is a lot harder to find. Maybe the distance to Melb. is a drawback, but on the plus side to that is the Airport is great and its only a short flight to Melb. and there is a bus to Swan Hill then train to Melb. The heat is Summer may be a drawback for some, but we love it.
Jan and Mal
Mildura is ok place it has long hot summers short winters the shopping is ok just getting a Aldi but if you have to go anywhere out of Mildura its long drives or expensive flights long waiting list to see a doctor if looking for a house in mildura look at houses past 14 Th street keep away from main roads a lot of problems come with that but like most places it has its good and bad sides to it
I have lived here for 20 years move from Bendigo and have never looked back great place to live with plenty of job opertunities as well bringing children up here never had a problem with going out so many great resturants and the place has changed so much over the last ten years I would recommend moving to Mildura
Certain words will be flagged and then reviewed before they go live on to the website, some of your comments are live on the website now.
I would never recommend Mildura, the streets are full of trash and dog crap, the public toliets are filthy , all the time. The people are rude and under the illusion they are some form of elite human race, bunch of story toppers, who dont want to listen to any thing but the sound of there own voice. My family and I have been to alot of places around Australia and have never experienced anything like Mildura, avoid the place. Mildura there is always better.
How hot is summer? Im moving from Qld to get away from the heat, Im guessing Mildura isnt the place to go to? The humidity in Qld is awful, I cant go out with the kids and do anything because of it. I just want to get out in nature and explore and not feel like Im dying
Gol Gol is about 5 km out of Mildura so would be good if you want somewhere quiet and laidback. Gol Gol is only very small, no supermarkets just a post office, milkbar, primary school and a couple of other shops. Mildura may be a better option if you want to be closer to facilities.
Sad that you feel that way michelles8. Our experience is the opposite. Friendly people, a sense of community and lots of things to do.
