Mildura was initially part of the Swan Hill Road District, which covered basically all of what is now northwestern Victoria. Swan Hill was incorporated on 8 July 1862, and became a shire on 14 August 1871. On 10 January 1890 the Shire of Mildura was incorporated from part of the Lower Murray Riding.
A new shire, Walpeup, was formed in western Victoria on 1 October 1911, taking in some southern areas of Mildura and sections of five other shires. A small part of the Shire in and near Mildura severed on 18 May 1920 and incorporated as a borough, which became the City of Mildura on 21 March 1934. Parts of the Sandilong and Lake Ridings were annexed to the City on 1 October 1971.
On 20 January 1995, the Shire was abolished, and merged with the City of Mildura and Shire of Walpeup into the Rural City of Mildura.

“Every library should try to be complete on something, if it were only the history of pinheads.”

“The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
