As Millmerran is located in the country, I found the homes were quite old, and many were cottages built to suit short people.
As the family grew, these cottages were made larger by adding what is known as a "sleepout" [photo 3]. I found some other larger homes that had some very nice window awnings with nice decorations.
Located in the main street of Millmerran, is a Plumbing business which is located in a "nissen hut."
A Nissen hut is made from a sheet of metal bent into half a cylinder, and was used extensively during World War II. Windows and doors were added to the buildings.
More than 50 Nissen huts were constructed in Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia after World War II, to provide cheap, ready-made housing for post-war British migrants families.
I should think, this one has been transported here from somewhere else in Australia and been made into a very good sized Plumbing supplies shop.

WALK THE STREET
OK, So there isn't a real lot to see here, but I still walked the main street and a little of some surrounding streets.
What did I see?
St. Peter's Anglican church, located in Warpole Street. There is the local pub, some quite old buildings, some have closed their doors, no longer needed with the modern car to travel to a bigger town that sells everything cheaper.

MILLMERRAN HISTORY MURALS
In Millmerran, we found a lot of Murals that were very well painted. These Murals depicted the various stages of the region's history.
The Old Millmerran Butter Factory Mural depicts the development of the dairy industry, whilst, on the wall of Millmerran's Swimming Pool, are swim costume fashions of years gone.
The Millmerran Reservoir Mural shows the development of transport from the 19th century to the early part of the 20th century.
The four giant Murals at the Cecil Plains Memorial Hall illustrate life on the land and the coming of the railway line.
