Mirrool is the next town we pass through heading south on the Newell Highway. A very small town it is. Mirrool and the surrounding area had a population of 211.
The place name Mirrool is derived from the local Aboriginal word meaning "Pipe Clay".
The town's pub was built between 1913 and 1916 and opened in 1917. In recent times it was narrowly saved when a group of local farmers banded together to buy the license just before it was sold off to Sydney (Liquor licenses can be sold to another concern and then reinstated in a different location).
Every second Saturday in October the town holds a large gathering to which Australian Rules fans congregate to compete in the $1000 prize for kicking a football over the 32 metre silos that are situated opposite the pub.
The Museum is represented by the old farm equipment.
