Brilliant few days in Mildura. The Sunraysia is such a vibrant, thriving region on the edge of the desert…thanks to water! And a proud and progressive local community.
The visionaries who created the irrigation scheme on the Murray created a food bowl, a bustling economy, and a bright future for their grandchildren. A lesson for northern Australia.
Thanks to the Sunraysia Daily for hosting me, and to all the local businesses we worked with. I loved every minute of it. The Daily itself is an amazing story – a family owned independent newspaper defying doomsday predictions for print news by growing their readership, proving if you do local news right, locals still want it.
Great coffee and food too. A houseboat holiday on the Murray is now on the ‘must do’ list.
