Wildflowers & Festivals
Miles is also known for the native wildflower's in the region, so pay a visit in Spring [September] when they are blooming. Wildflowers are in abundance after the Spring rains.
The 'Back to the Bush Festival' is held then.
The Beef, Bells and Bottle Tree Festival is a month long biennial event held during the month of September.
We stopped at the Information Centre / The Miles Historical Village and went for a look. It really is excellent, and worth a visit.
There are more than 30 historic buildings, including a hospital, cafe, bank, post office and bakery.
Around here, life on the land is spent producing wheat, sorghum, barley and cotton. Timber production is important, and cattle and sheep grazing, including feedlots is widespread in the area.
Miles is located 339 kms west of Brisbane
