The town was surveyed in December 1853. Milang was a significant port on the Murray River System between 1860 and 1880, before the railway line was built to connect Adelaide to Morgan further upstream. Between December 1884 and June 1970, a spur-line of the Mount Barker-Victor Harbor railway ran approximately 8 miles (12.8 km) from the junction at Sandergrove to Milang, mainly used for freight but also as a minor passenger service. The line was dismantled in the 1970s after the railway was official closed.
Milang Football Club (the Milang Panthers) currently compete in the Hills Football League C Grade competition.
