Information

Mia Mia is a small broadacre farming area in Central Victoria with a population of under 300. It is part of the Heathcote wine region and is part of Bendigo and Mitchell shires.

Mia Mia is notable for being the home of the Duigan brothers who built and flew the first Australian made aeroplane in 1910 on their property named Spring Plains.

The road from Lancefield to Mia Mia via Ben Loch and the Great Dividing Range is now called 'The Burke and Wills Track' in recognition of the Burke and Wills expedition which passed through Mia Mia in 1860 on their journey across Australia from Melbourne to the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Mia Mia’s western boundary is on the Campaspe River which is crossed by an iron bridge near Redesdale that is unusual in design and is quite memorable for those passing through.

A mia-mia is a temporary shelter made of bark, branches, leaves and grass used by some Indigenous Australians. The word is also used in Australian English to mean "a temporary shelter". It comes from the Wada Wurrung language.
