Conveniently located along the Warrego Highway at the eastern entrance to Miles, just 3.5 hours inland from Brisbane, the museum offers a fascinating stop on your travels. Nestled at the crossroads of the Warrego and Leichhardt Highways, Miles provides an ideal location for a restful break, offering excellent accommodation options and two serene free-camp sites under ancient eucalypts along the Dogwood Creek.

The museum’s origins trace back to the late 1960s when the Miles & District Historical Society envisioned a Historical Village.
