Simpsons CottageAbout Us

The Millewa Pioneer Park, situated 90 km from Mildura on Millewa road at Meringur was established in 1986, to recognise the efforts of the early settlers creating homes and farms in challenging circumstances.

It is run by a volunteer committee, committed to creating a visual hands-on display of early Millewa District history and lifestyle. The emphasis of the displays is to preserve the heritage, environment and history of the wider Millewa community.

The park is open daily for you to browse around. Guides and light catering are available by appointment. Come and learn about our history and share our enjoyment of this wonderful region.

If you have any queries please contact us.
