MERBEIN

Merbein is also a satellite town of Mildura, but is also the northern most municipalities in Victoria. Merbein is somewhat more independent of Mildura. More so than Red Cliffs. Merbein has a little character where as Red Cliffs is manicured.

Heading westward to Wentworth the traveler will pass through Merbein.

The area was known as White Cliffs until 1909 when the township was established, the Post Office opening on August 16, 1909. The name was intended to be Merebin, which is the Aboriginal word for "white sandcliffs", but an error made when registering the name corrupted it to Merbein.

Merbein is the home of Mildara Wines, which W B Chaffey founded in 1911. The Mildara Blass Winery still stands on the cliffs towering above the Murray River, and is open to visitors for a tour and wine tasting. The CSIRO Plant Research Division has a facility at Merbein focused on the grape and citrus growing industries.

The Museum is represented by the Historical Society.

The Merbein War Memorial is located in ANZAC Park on the west fringe of the township.

The Hotel is your large and grand classic country pub.

The Churches in Merbein are also located on the fringe of the town. A mix of traditional and new.

Wentworth will be your target and unless the wine tour is of interest continue on.
