Headquarters of Murilla Shire, the town of Miles is located at the centre of a native wildflower region extending north to the Great Divide. In the heart of the Western Downs, the region has diversified primary production, and successful mining of Bentonite Clay.
Take a trip back in time as you experience life in the Miles tradition. Miles is a town bursting with history, which has been captured by the Miles Historic Village. The beautiful Balonne River highlights the beauty of Miles, particularly in September when the wildflowers blossom in abundance.
Miles Historical Village and Museum features authentic buildings from the early pioneering days such as a dairy, church, school and police cells. See into history down the main street of Miles and District Historical Village. Visit a variety of stores including the blacksmith's shop, bakery, hotel, bank and cafe.
An attraction for travellers who visit the area in September is the Miles Wildflower Festival which is a reminder that, in spring, the area around Miles is alive with dramatic and beautiful displays of native wildflowers.
Dogwood Crossing - There is seven metre tall steel bottle trees that form a stunning colonnade down the centre of the building. Once inside relax and explore the colourful stories of local life or view art and craft works by locals in the Art Gallery.
