This home is well worth a visit when in Mildura. It and it’s history is a lesson in Mildura’s past. The Arts Centre attached is a great collection also.

This is Rio Vista (River View) and was occupied by the Chaffey's. The windows in this house are beautiful stained glass. It is attached to the art gallery and there is a café there too. The girls on the front desk were wonderful. Free entry.

A fascinating old house beautifully maintained and giving a real feel of the way people lived in the late 1800s. I should also like to mention the friendliness of the staff who greeted us and showed us where to go

History and contemporary art, what a wonderful combination. The most magnificent Mildura home ever built. It’s Australian, built by the Canadian founders of Mildura, with Australian and Italian materials, with a Californian influence. It’s classic.
