Acacia Houseboats: Something Different..

Houseboat accommodation is a lovely way to spend a holiday in Mildura. This is something you can't do everywhere, and makes the holiday really unique. Even better, if you are travelling with friends, or with a group.. and share expenses.

You can cruise the river, and enjoy the scenery. You won't have far to go for that morning or evening dip in the water. And a lot of privacy as well.

Prices depend on season..
2 People - 3 days - $550 then $110 per night.
Also depends on which boat you hire.

Northaven Backpackers: Working hostel

When I stayed here, it was really crappy. Things were filthy, only one small kitchen was opened for 100 people and they were doing dodgy stuff with the money you earned. But I read on the internet that there are new owners. Things are clean now, there's a bigger kitchen and less people in a dorm room.

There's a pool, a laundry, a bar and two kitchens.

Main Camping area, Mungo: Camping at Mungo National Park

At Mungo National Park, camping is only allowed in the designated areas, of which there are two, Main Camp, (where camp fires are permitted) just a few kms past the Lodge and entrance to the park, and one other, many more kms distant and more isolated, but where campfires are strictly forbidden.
Price for bush camping (with a water tank and primitive bush toilets) was about $3 per person per night, plus the day visitor entry fee to the park (of about $11).

Our campsite was located just far enough away from other tents and camper trailers so as not to be crowded. I guess there would have been about 15 other vehicles at the campsite.

River Bend Tourist Park: Riverside Camping

Had to laugh - sublime to the ridiculous. Original plan:- 2 nights in Mildura at the Grand Hotel. Sandwiched in-between a night camping out at Mungo National Park. But things didn;t quite work out that way and ended up staying in the comfy lodge out at the NP. And guess who left mobile phone at the lodge? Found out as settling into the room at the Grand. A quick phone call back to the lodge and an agreement that it would be delivered the 2 nights later in Mildura! So that one night at the Grand Hotel and then onto the camp site. And to be honest, the campsite was better than the Grand!! :)

Terrific campsite on the outskirts of Mildura and opposite Apex Beach. Its known as a 'campers' park, providing a sense of bush camping rather than the over-sanitised caravan parks that abound in parts of Australia. Pitch your tent 'off the beaten track' among the towering trees (and get yourself a fantastic view of the night skies) for just A$15 (unpowered) a tent. Facilities are nothing fancy but are appropriate for the sense of feeling - clean but basic shower/amenities block, shop/office, a few BBQ stations dotted round. Caravans tend to be found at the beginning of the park and there are cabins for hire if you have forgotten your tent!

As it is out of town at the end of the road, its quiet and terrific location.

Stopover: Budget Accommodation/Backpacker style

The first thing I noticed about Stopover was that it was immaculately clean and new looking: indeed, it has been open less than 2 years.
It's more budget accommodation than a hostel, though there were a few backpackers staying there as well.
We stayed there as business travellers and couldn't have been more impressed.
And for $45 dble and bathroom facilities next door (separate 4 showers 2 toilets room for Men and women), it was even better.
To us, it felt more like staying in an apartment.
The place holds about 40 people, some in dorm rooms, others doubles.
Note though that since the passageways aren't carpeted, if there are a lot of people staying there at once, it can get very noisy and the sound just echoes.

The kitchen was immaculate, and everything brand new. Plenty of cooking facilities, plus even electric wok and sandwich maker, besides the usual equipment.
All the comforts of home, and then some, basically (especially on my first visit when I went outside to the courtyard while it was 30 degrees and discovered their new swimming pool...needless to say, I wasted no time in jumping in, and was lucky to have it all to myself then, and also the next morning, when it was even warm enough to swim at 9.30 am)
The Tv room has videos, a large tv, and at least 5 new couches - very comfortable.
The kitchen has about 6 tables or more, plenty of space, and there's also an outside garage style seating area with roller door. CD player provided there.
There's good security also, with electronic keypad.
The husband and wife team who run the place are very friendly, and the wife (Debbie) rather chatty - and it seemed to have rubbed off on everyone staying there - everybody said hello or was on for a chat. Nice environment.
