Mildura Day 2023

Celebrations to mark the signing of the indenture granting land to the Chaffey’s in 1887, were once again held on May 31st for Mildura Day. As part of the event, Frames of History conducted a film night to a packed house at Langtree Hall, screening new material including a wonderful film on the beginning of Milduras’ Marching Girls in the 50’s. Well known local historian Bob Walton joins us in this episode, as we recap some of the highlights of the day including the unveiling of a new sign in a very prominent spot on the river bank. This is close to the site of the original Mildura homestead.

Here’s a short video clip highlighting the event held at the Homestead site created by Robert Klarich

    Prompted by this morning’s presentatation, Wendy and I
    decided to take a walk to check out the Mildura Tree and to have a proper read of the recently erected sign at that spot.
    It’s a great program Ian, and future generations will appreciate the fact that so much of our history has been recorded and is easily accessible to anyone with an interest in Mildura’s past.
