Mia Mia is a picturesque area of Central Victoria, Australia, some 100 km North of Melbourne and 50 km South of Bendigo. It is largely an area of broadacre farms raising cattle and sheep. It is a part of the Heathcote wine region Wine District and a number of vineyards have been established in the area, most notably producing Shiraz grapes.

Its local government areas are the City of Greater Bendigo and Mitchell Shire, Mia Mia is part of the Federal Electorates of Bendigo and McEwen and it is in the state electorate of Rodney. It has an approximate population of 200.

Mia Mia is notable for being the home of the Duigan brothers who built and flew the first Australian made aeroplane in 1910 on their property named Spring Plains. A monument to their endeavours was constructed out of local bluestone.

Mia Mia’s western boundary is on the Campaspe River which is crossed by an iron bridge that is unusual in design and is quite memorable for those passing through.
