"For a remote country town on the edge of the desert, 400 kilometres from the nearest capital city, regional Mildura might seem like an unlikely food tourism destination. While many are lured by the many charms of the Murray, it's not all houseboats and paddle steamers; as you'll discover, the riverside mecca has its food and wine bases very nicely covered too".
Though some of my friends might tend to disagree, the truth is my life ain't just about big international cities and exotic tropical locations; I'm a country girl at heart so I like to keep things local too!
A few weeks back i flew up to sunny Mildura to check out the region's many local food, wine and produce highlights - and there was plenty to like!
