Mitta Mitta, a small rural township in north-east Victoria, is on the Omeo Highway about midway between Wodonga and Omeo. It is also on the Mitta Mitta River, where the highway joins the Mitta Mitta valley on its way northwards.
In 1837 pastoralists from New South Wales reached the valley and took up the Mitta Mitta pastoral run. They extended the run further south in 1842. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal expression describing a small area of water or a place where reeds grow.
