77 kilometres from Adelaide

In the late 19th century, Milang was the largest inland port in South Australia, providing a busy trade and produce hub for road transport from Melbourne. The paddle steamers are long gone, leaving Milang as a peaceful refuge with a laid-back lifestyle that suits families, windsurfers, anglers or binocular-packing bird-watchers.

Set on the western shore of Lake Alexandrina, Milang has many charming old buildings, including two restored railway carriages on the tracks, which houses the very interesting heritage museum and a group of quirky heritage 'work men's shacks' on the foreshore.
