Sitting at the junction of the Warrego Way and Leichhardt Way, Miles is a vibrant rural township known for its spring wildflowers and a well-preserved “living” pioneering history. Originally named “Dogwood Crossing”, Miles was established on a track blazed by the explorer, Ludwig Leichhardt in 1844. Life as it was back then has been realistically preserved at the Miles Historical Village Museum. Here you literally step back in time to explore more than 30 buildings in a streetscape setting. Authentic and exact replica turn-ofthe- century buildings feature alongside amazing shell and lapidary displays and an extensive collection of war memorabilia. Self-drive tour brochures, fishing, and wildflower trail guides of the district are available from the Miles Visitor Information Centre, also located at the Historical Village. Don’t miss Dogwood Crossing where you will see seven-metre-tall bottle trees forming a stunning colonnade down the centre of the building. Here you can relax and explore colourful tales, local life stories, and epic events which have made the region the place it is today. There’s also a library, the John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery and IT Centre. You can mingle with the locals at the Miles Picnic Races each February, or join in the celebrations of the Beef, Bells and Bottle Tree Festival in September, coinciding with the beginning of the wildflower season.
