MILLMERRAN

When traveling east from Goondiwindi towards Toowoomba two towns of substance are passed through. The first of these is Millmerran.

Millmerran is a really nice place and community pride is on display throughout the place, not the least via the building mural program. The town’s history is on display for all to enjoy.

The Millmerran area began in 1841 when the Gore brothers established the vast Yandilla Station. Yandilla Station covered an estimated 1,000 square miles and hosted its own school with 20 to 30 students, telegraph station and store.

Millmerran was elevated to the status of town and the name changed to Domville, on 1 June 1889.The name was later changed to Millmerran on 16 November 1894. And is just beginning to show the signs of being a Toowoomba commute satellite.

The Millmerran Museum, for the traveler is a visit of necessitity to acquire a full appreciation of what the town has to offer. An hour or so well spent gives a great insight to Millmerran's history.

The Millmerran Churches are design and structures of substance. Be sure to stop off at old historic church 10k out heading east. A rare traditional now in Qld.

The Millmerran Hotel is surviving host and visitor establishment.

The war Memorial is a fitting acknowledgment for Millmerran.

For the cruiser an overnight stay should be a serious consideration. This is a great small town.
