Millmerran

The rich agricultural area of the Condamine and Macintyre catchments make Millmerran a prosperous rural town.

There's a firm nod to the past at the Millmerran Visitor Information Center and Museum, with something of interest for everyone from buildings and displays to memorabilia of times gone by. Don't miss the prized "water baby" - a 28 foot steam vessel which was made at Yandilla station in 1878.

Be sure not to miss the series of larger than life murals throughout the town depicting the history of the town's development.

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.

Drive 19 kilometres south of Millmerran to view the Mt Basalt Reserve, a unique area featuring rare volcanic formation, with walking trails and lookouts offering spectacular views.

Millmerran's busy events calendar includes the classic biennial Australian Camp Oven Festival (2018). Not only can you throw a damper, you can eat your fill of camp oven tucker; hear bush poetry and listen to country music.

Other events to plan for include Millmerran Show on the first weekend in March and the annual Millmerran Sheep Races - a six race program followed by a Calcutta in August.

Millmerran: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Millmerran Museum and Tourist Information Centre


As a visitor to the Millmerran Museum you will reminisce of a time gone by when you see the displays collected from the local district, many of which have been donated by the families of the district's pioneers. This is not a stark and sterile museum, it's a living, breathing and continually evolving collection from the people and the stories of Millmerran, housed in 11 buildings on site. Experience the museums' collections of pioneering histories and photographs, war, railway, schooling and dairy industry memorabilia along with so much more.

One item of interest is the Water Baby, a steam launch - built entirely on Yandilla Station in 1877 was both a pleasure craft, taking guests for trips on the river, also used to rescue stud sheep during times of flood.

The Millmerran Museum also has a large section of written local histories and photographs - appointments are recommended for family research.

Large groups and bus groups are most welcome. You can bring along your lunch or catering can be organised (by prior arrangement).

Millmerran Museum is a part of the Toowoomba Region Transport Heritage Trail. The tourism office is available to answer all of your regional tourism questions.

Australian Camp Oven Festival


The Australian Camp Oven Festival is a weekend of great family fun that celebrates Aussie cultural bush heritage. Kids can be part of the damper throwing or billy boiling competitions, while adults might like to try their hand at making a damper or even putting together a team for one of the friendly cooking competitions.

Visitors are encouraged to slow down and savour the country pace and choose to do as much or as little as they like, you can sit back while watching the cooking demonstrations, or enjoy the arts, crafts, and old working machinery. Enjoy some authentic camp oven food before you kick up your heels with the Saturday night entertainment. The Poet's Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings brings the best poets from afar.
