Millmerran - Places to See

The All Saints Anglican Church
The All Saints Anglican Church in Yandilla was consecrated by Bishop Webber in 1887. For many years it was used as a private chapel for the Gore family and the workers on Yandilla Station. Now listed by the National Trust it is the oldest building in the Millmerran Shire and is almost certainly the second-oldest church in Queensland. It is characterised by a steeply-pitched roof and a tall spire. Not surprisingly it contains memorials to members of the Gore family, including a large stone font, a bible dating back to 1857 and pews which were brought out from Britain. The graveyard contains the headstones of a number of early pioneers. It can be inspected by contacting (07) 4695 1581.

Millmerran Historical Museum
Visitors wishing to know more about the town should visit the Millmerran Historical Society Museum in the old Shire Council chambers in Charlotte Street which can be opened by contacting (07) 4695 2560. Of particular interest is Yandilla Station's 'Water Baby' steam launch which was used to ship produce along the Condamine River. To describe it as a 'baby' is rather deceptive as the launch is nearly 10-m long and 2-m high. For more information check out: http://www.millmerran.net.au/millmerranhistoricalsociety.html
