GETTING HERE BY ROAD
The main arterial roads leading to Miles are sealed. If your visit to our festival is just one part of your organised journey throughout the Western Downs region and you plan to venture off the major highway, you will find that some of our rural roads can be slightly narrower, with a number of tributary roads being gravel. Many of these are considered ‘all-weather' accessible, however, we encourage you to seek advice from our Visitor Information Centre (VIC) staff before going off the beaten track.
If you'd rather let someone else do the driving, why not take a bus? The following companies provide transport to and from Miles daily.
