Millmerran


Description

You've heard of spitting the dummy? Well in Millmerran they throw the damper! The fun and irreverence of the biennial Australian Camp Oven Festival is a great reason to visit, but there's so much more to this little town on the western fringe of the Darling Downs.

The rich agricultural area of the Condamine and Macintyre catchments make Millmerran a prosperous rural town. Of note to travellers is that it's a town that does much to preserve its past and keep its pioneering history alive.

To get your bearings and a little local history lesson, take in the panoramic views from Commodore Peak Lookout. A series of larger than life murals here depict the district's history and how the town developed.

Europeans first settled the area in 1841 when brothers George and Ralph Gore established Yandilla Station in an area of 1,784 kilometres squared between Millmerran and Pittsworth. At one time it was the size of a small township with its own store and telegraph station.

Consecrated in 1887, the National Trust-listed All Saints Anglican Church in Yandilla is the oldest building in the district and believed to be the second oldest church in Queensland. Its classic design features superb stained-glass windows made in memory of Reverend William Francis Gore.

There's a firm nod to the past at Millmerran Museum. Don't miss its prized "water baby" - a 28 foot steam vessel which was made at Yandilla Station in 1878.

It's worth a drive, just 19 kilometres south of Millmerran, to The Mt Basalt reserve. This unique geological and environmental area features rare volcanic formations and offers a variety of walking trails and a lookout with spectacular views.
