Welcome to Miles - the principal town of the Murilla Shire - A vibrant rural community and Heart of the Golden West. 

We invite you to stay at our friendly 27 Unit motel - The Miles Outback Motel - located on the crossroads of the Warrego and Leichhardt highways at Miles, Queensland Australia

Miles is 350 klm west north west of Brisbane. It is an ideal stop-over for travellers heading west to the Longreach Stockman's Hall of Fame or north to the Great Barrier Reef.

Located in the Shire are the historic towns of:-

  • Dulacca
  • Drillham and
  • Condamine

The history of Miles dates back to the mid 1800's when it was originally named Dogwood Crossing and was located on the track blazed by the pioneering explorer Ludwig Leichhardt. It was renamed Miles in 1878 in honour of the member for Maranoa and the Minister for Railways at the time, the Hon William Miles.

The western rail line from Brisbane to Charleville and Quilpie opened up Western Queensland. A variety of quality grain crops and some of Australia's best livestock are produced in this area.

More recent times have seen interest in oil, gas and coal exploration in the area.
