Description

Miles was originally named Dogwood Crossing and was established on a track blazed by the explorer, Ludwig Leichhardt in 1884.

The Miles Historical Village is a big talking point among all who have travelled this way before. Here the visitor will literally step back into history when they step into the many buildings in this turn-of-the-century village. There are more than 20 historic buildings, including a hospital, cafe, bank, post office and bakery.

Another must see when in town is Dogwood Crossing @ Miles, which is home to the local art gallery, library, IT centre and social history. The lovely staff will be more than happy to help you out with any information.

The town has a shopping centre, hospital, commercial, educational and professional facilities available. Sporting amenities include an Olympic swimming pool.

Miles is 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. The beautiful Balonne River highlights the beauty of Miles, particularly in September when the wildflowers bloom in abundance.

Closest major town: Toowoomba, approximately 212 kilometres.
