MILDURA is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Californian exchange partners to celebrate 50 “golden years” of strong ties with its sister city, Upland. 

To honour their shared history as settle­ments founded by the Chaffey brothers, 16 Uplanders will touch down in Sunraysia as a part of the Mildura Sister City Found­ation. 

But Upland resident Desiree Herr­era has arrived a week early to reconnect with ­people she has met through the ­exchange program.
