The rich agricultural area of the Condamine and Macintyre catchments make Millmerran a prosperous rural town. There’s a firm nod to the past at the Millmerran Visitor Information Center and Museum, with something of interest for everyone from buildings and displays to memorabilia of times gone by. Don’t miss the prized “water baby” – a 28 foot steam vessel which was made at Yandilla station in 1878. Be sure not to miss the series of larger than life murals throughout the town depicting the history of the town’s development. Consecrated in 1887, the National Trust-listed All Saints Anglican Church in Yandilla is the oldest building in the district and believed to be the second oldest church in Queensland. Drive 19 kilometres south of Millmerran to view the Mt Basalt Reserve, a unique area featuring rare volcanic formation, with walking trails and lookouts offering spectacular views. Millmerran’s busy events calendar includes the classic biennial Australian Camp Oven Festival (2018). Not only can you throw a damper, you can eat your fill of camp oven tucker; hear bush poetry and listen to country music. Other events to plan for include Millmerran Show on the first weekend in March and the annual Millmerran Sheep Races – a six race program followed by a Calcutta in August.
