View Full Version : Mildura and surrounds Mummies???
I've posted this a while back without much success but thought I would give it another whirl. I can't be the only one out here can I ??
I dont know if Im included in the surrounds but Im in Paringa/Renmark!!
Hi to you again anyways. I know it can be a bit lonely in this neck of the woods.
Oh tell me about it :rolleyes: We moved here in February for 12 - 18 months from just south of Sydney. Its a different world out here! I don't mind Renmark we have been there a couple of times on a day out. Theres a nice pub there and a couple of shops worthy of a day trip. But its a little smaller than Mildura.
Remnark is WAY smaller than Mildura.Then paringa is samller again. We have been here for about 4 months. My DH is building the new plaza. We are going back to Adelaide for good the first week in December. We're trying see this as a 'life experience' & of corse to pay off a few credit cards.:laughing:
We went to Mildura a couple of times but like Renmark everything seemed to be closed on Sundays. Target here is really small so when the toy sale came I went to Mildura to get a few things for DD.
Are you living in the town or out in the bush a bit? Did you say you are TTC or have a bub?
Mildura is a funny place for shopping. The mall only seems to function early on a Saturday morning and by afternoon a lot of the shops have closed up :confused: They still seem attached to the old ways as small business people. But if you go over the centro it seems to be its busiest on a Sunday or Saturday afternoon. The country town my DH is from is the same (Mildura has a lot of similarities to it actually)
I think the best thing about Mildura is its restaurant life which is so modern for a little country town.
We took our move to Mildura as an experience too. Unfortunately it hasn't been as financially great as we had hoped as moving out here cost us a fortune. I find the lack of family also much tougher than I expected. Our closest family members would be in Adelaide and its an 11 hour drive home (luckily there is an airport here if we need to go home urgently)
I found the toy sale thing really weird as 'at home" (which is wherever we are not at current ) toy sales involve sturdy shoes and lines out the door. In Mildura I drifted in all relaxed picked up what I wanted went to the register and left. No line ups anywhere not even layby :eek: Don't shop a lot out here which I thought would save us money but it just means I do a lot of net shopping or stock up when we are home or in Adelaide lol (which I am off to this weekend coming :smiliedance: )
I have an 11 month old boy :D he is my shopping buddy
