The city's name was taken from the Mildura homestead, an early sheep station which covered most of the area.
The urban area of Mildura is surrounded by a horticulture area, known as the traditional pumped district, where the original grape and citrus blocks were located with water irrigated from the Murray River.
On 10 January 2007 the Victorian Government did not rule out some form of reimbursement for the Rural City of Mildura council's legal and other costs in opposing the LTCF.
The city's central business district is located just a short distance from the banks of the Murray.Several towns surround Mildura on the flat plains including Merbein to the west as well as Irymple and Red Cliffs to the south which could be considered suburban areas or satellite towns separated by small stretches of open farmland.While the land along the river and irrigation channels is fertile, much of the land around Mildura is also dry, saline and semi-arid.After this period, the new settlement grew and grew. Many of these migrants were attracted by the unskilled labour offered by the fruit picking industry. In 2004 there was a controversial proposal by the Victorian Government to build a state-level Long Term Containment Facility (LTCF) for Industrial Waste in Nowingi, approximately 50 km south of Mildura.The site is a small enclave of state forest surrounded by national park, and contains habitat important to a number of threatened species.
