Miles Historical Village
The Miles Historical Village Museum is a big talking point amongst all who have travelled this way before. The museum was first established in 1971 by dedicated volunteers with an amazing vision for preserving local heritage of the pioneering era. Here you literally step back into history when you explore the many buildings within this turn-of-the-century village.
There are more than 30 buildings including a hospital, café, bank, post office and bakery. In addition to these buildings, you will find a number of other fantastic displays. You will see the amazing shell collection; it is one of the largest privately owned collections in Australia. There is also the world class lapidary display, including many fine examples of local petrified wood. The extensive collection of war uniforms and memorabilia in the War Museum is a big attraction on its own.
Perhaps one of the most significant collections is that of the Condamine Bells that were made locally in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
