About SuniTAFE

Established in 1980, SuniTAFE was the brainchild of a number of local educators, who recognised that access to post-secondary education was integral to the needs of the growing Sunraysia community and regional industry.


While starting out small, SuniTAFE has grown into a vibrant educational community that includes the two main campuses at Mildura and Swan Hill, as well as a training farm at Cardross. Additionally, SuniTAFE now has programs operating in every state and territory in Australia, as part of our commitment to building educational partnerships and expanding the opportunities for our students to succeed.


SuniTAFE offers a comprehensive range of vocational courses, all of which are geared to providing students with the skills and training they require to gain employment and progress in their chosen industry. We also offer the opportunity to move on to further education through our University Pathways program, giving students the firm educational groundwork they need to achieve their goals.


40 years on from its inception, SuniTAFE has had a huge impact on the community and industry of the Sunraysia district and surrounds. Our commitment to facilitating access to quality vocational education and training to regional and rural students has seen us grow to be the largest educational provider in north-west Victoria. And we're not stopping there.


At SuniTAFE, we are always planning for the future of our students and the region, in terms of skills and training gaps and opportunities for employment. This is why, over the next few years, we are focusing on the horticulture, transport, logistics, automotive and health industries, which have been identified as key areas for growth in the region.
