Milang is a peaceful coastal town offering a laid-back lifestyle that suits the many families, windsurfers, anglers or bird watchers who enjoy it today. The town has many charming old buildings, including heritage workmen's shacks on the foreshore and other reminders of a bygone paddle steamer era.
Milang was once an active river port of South Australia, where paddle steamers would unload their cargo for transport overland to Adelaide, Port Adelaide and the world, first by bullock dray then by steam train.
The history of the town can be seen everywhere you look, and the local Progress Association and Historical Society are continually helping to preserve this aspect of Milang. You can visit the museum or browse through the Port Milang railway station complex.
