Miles Back to the Bush Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

9 Sep 2021 to 12 Sep 2021 Biennial Event

Get back to the bush for a festival that delivers country experiences with a fun vintage twist, incorporating in 2021 the Big 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Miles Historical Village! The festival celebrates life in the bush and invites visitors to experience the warm country hospitality of Miles locals through a range of bush festivities over an extended weekend in September.

Don’t miss any of the action from the street parade, craft beers, dog high jumping competition, vintage car displays, private vintage collections tours, country markets, bush poets and performers, and delight in a little quirky fun with tractor pulls and bush obstacle races, beard competitions and pot billy boiling challenges.

The Downs Explorer Steam Train will be making a special trip out to Miles for the festival, so festival visitors can book to travel to and from the festival for the ultimate vintage experience all the way!

Enjoy quintessential bush celebrations throughout the weekend and immerse yourself in days gone by at the renowned Miles Historical Village Museum.

Whether you are an adventurer, nature lover, collector, history buff, foodie or music lover; your whole family are guaranteed a unique bush experience.

Experience life in the bush by day and by night.
