Noted explorer Captain Charles Sturt and his party were almost certainly the first white men to pass by the future site of Buronga during their historic exploration of the Murray River in the 1830s.
After that, an increasing number of Europeans passed through, the majority overlanders (drovers) taking stock to the Adelaide markets, but others were pioneering graziers taking up the 'vacant' Crown Land between the Murray and the Lower Darling Rivers.
Buronga, as we know it today, was part of the huge Tapio run, formed when the Federal Government decided to formalise lease rights to the land in the 1840s. This area is situated on the Sturt Highway, just five minutes from Mildura.

The Chaffey Trail, Mildura
Trace Mildura's rich irrigation history by following The Chaffey Trail - a self-guided tour of key heritage sites and buildings of the region. Named in honour of Canadian brothers George and W.B. Chaffey, The Chaffey Trail provides an insight into the vision and spirit of the area's early settlers. Their legacy lives on at numerous buildings and sites throughout the region, and comes alive along The Chaffey Trail.
In 1847 the Jamieson brothers took up the pastoral lease which was later to be named Mildura.
George and W.B. Chaffey were developing an irrigated settlement in Ontario, California when they met the Australian Cabinet Minister Alfred Deakin. Deakin was appointed by the Victorian Parliament to visit America on a fact finding mission.
The Chaffey's model irrigated settlement impressed Deakin who in turn impressed them with the potential for irrigation from the Murray River in Australia.
The Chaffey brothers subsequently came to Australia and, after protracted negotiations, on 31 May 1887, purchased the then defunct pastoral lease and created the Mildura Irrigation Colony.
The Chaffey's adapted the plan of Ontario to the present site of Mildura.
They developed a series of steam driven pumps to life the water from the Murray River, first into Kings Billabong, then subsequently to various heights to irrigate up to 33,000 acres.
The Chaffey Brothers wanted to make Mildura a vibrant community. Their plans included many visionary concepts that ended up making Mildura the success it is today.
Now you can trace the developments and concepts of Mildura through the Chaffey Trail.
