Early explorers and overlanders no doubt would have passed by this site in the mid 1800s before pioneering graziers took up the land between the Murray and Lower Darling Rivers. Originally part of the ‘Tapio Run’, Buronga is situated on the Sturt Highway, just five minutes from Mildura. It is a modern close-knit community based on light industry, horticulture and viticulture.
The Australian Inland Botanic Gardens are situated close to town and are the first semi-arid botanic gardens in the Southern Hemisphere.
You’ll also find winery production and citrus and olive orchards. A riverbank caravan park and motels cater for accommodation needs.
The potential of the Midway Centre as a conference and event facility is exciting, particularly when the Stadium, Function Centre and Meeting areas are combined. This provides the opportunity for the Wentworth Shire to host large conferences, with a separate meal service area and multiple break out rooms.
Alternatively the combined stadium and function area provides a premier reception facility for large formal functions such as weddings.
