If you see wildlife on the side of the road, slow down to reduce your braking distance and give the animal a chance to cross. *BE CAREFUL as kangaroos are very common on the roads leading into Mildura.
  • Leave your fruit at home – Mildura is in a Fruit Fly Exclusion Zone. Buy fresh local produce when you arrive.
