Millmerran Water Tank

Millmerran is located 206 km west of Brisbane and can be found 82 km south-west of Toowoomba on the Gore Highway.

There are a series five historical murals in Millerran including the mural on the water reservoir. I’m unsure of when it was painted and who the artist or artists were.

According to Aussie Towns “there is a very useful brochure (available at the museum) which has a map identifying where the five Historical Murals are located and what each of them depicts. There is a mural on the Old Milmerran Butter Factory depicting the development of the local dairy industry; one on the outer wall of the Transport Depot depicting the evolution of transport from horse drawn drays through rail to modern trucks; one on the town reservoir depicting the early days of transporting water to Millmerran; on the swimming pool wall showing swimming costume fashions and the local water hole where people swam until an Olympic-size pool was built in 1966; and one on the Millmerran & District Historical Society wall depicting two traction engines which were imported from England in 1885. They are an effective visual history of the town and the district.”
