Miriam Vale
Home

Miriam Vale is located 450 klilometers north of Brisbane and 60 kilometers south of Gladstone on the North Coast Line . It was once a large timber and cattle center but now tourism and the highway provide the lifeblood of the town.
The towns station still survives and all passenger trains including the tilt service stop here. The town was once a major infrastructure depot for the railway but new line constructed to the south of town has done away with many of those jobs.
