Red Cliffs

Red Cliffs is a rural township in north-west Victoria, 15 km south of Mildura. The name came from the 60 metre high cliffs along the Murray River a few kilometres east of the township. The Chaffey brothers, originators of the Mildura irrigation colony (1887), stated that Red Cliffs had been their first choice for settlement, but pumps were unable to raise the water over such a height above the river level for irrigation.
