The History of the Mildura Club almost parallels the history of Mildura itself.

The Mildura Club's founding chairman Mr. W.B. Chaffey was also the founder of the Mildura Irrigation Colony.

Despite attempts by the temperance movement to make the colony alcohol free, "W.B." was instrumental in the establishing the Mildura Club where business and professional people would partake of their drink in a "civilised manner".
