Millaa Millaa

Rural

Millaa Millaa is an Aboriginal word meaning plenty of water or waterfall and this is as true as ever as some of the most beautiful waterfalls are within a few minutes drive of the town. The main one of course is Millaa Millaa but further along Tourist Drive number nine stop in and photograph Zillie Falls and Ellinjaa Falls to name a few.

In the main street is a lovely park with a larger than life statue of Christie Palmerston and one of his Aboriginal guides. The Palmerston Highway is named after this famous explorer.

Coffee shops and the local hotel provide convivial hospitality for visitors and the historical museum is open most mornings from 10.00am to midday.

The main industries of the Millaa Millaa area are dairying and tourism and most of the rainforest is now World Heritage-listed so enjoy your stay.
