WELCOME TO the heart of the western downs

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE MILES DISTRICT

Welcome to Miles

Situated about four hours drive west of Brisbane and sitting at the crossroads of the Warrego and Leichhardt Highways is the principal town of our district, Miles.

Here you will find our Visitor Information Centre located at the Miles Historical Village, the perfect place to start your adventure. Our friendly staff, equipped with boundless local knowledge, can assist you with your journey throughout the heart of the Western Downs Region including visits to the small townships within our district such as Condamine, Drillham, Dulacca and Guluguba, and other notable locations such as Columboola, Gurulmundi, Kowguran and more, that give us our relaxed country character.

Experience the heart of the Western Downs Region

Close to town, nature lovers can absorb the wonder of the Miles area that was first bestowed on Leichhardt and his team over 150 years ago. The iconic Dogwood tree, or Jacksonia Scoparia, and other native trees and shrubs can be seen along the relaxing Dogwood Creek Walking Track and the rare pink form of the native waterlily produces a spectacular display on Chinaman's Lagoon during the summer and autumn months. Our district is also renowned for its landscape blanketed in delicate wildflowers, the full splendour of which can be absorbed throughout spring in a self-drive tour.   

Accommodation To Suit All

There is a huge variety of accommodation available throughout the Western Downs region.

Discover historic pubs, restored underground bunkers and troop trains, rural retreats, or go bush and camp in style surrounded by our amazing landscape.
