Miling is a small town in the Shire of Moora, 200 kilometres (124 mi) north of Perth, Western Australia. At the 2006 census, Miling had a population of 205.[1]

It is the terminus of the Clackline - Miling railway branch line 150 miles from Perth, that originally started at Clackline, but which, after the changes to the Eastern Railway in 1966 - commenced at West Toodyay.

It is a location within the network of 'wheatbins' as served by the Wheatbelt railway lines of Western Australia [2]

In 1932 the Wheat Pool of Western Australia announced that the town would have two grain elevators, each fitted with an engine, installed at the railway siding.[3]

The surrounding areas produce wheat and other cereal crops. The town is a receival site for Cooperative Bulk Handling.[4]
