Michelago is a small settlement in the Monaro region of New South Wales, Australia, approximately 54 km south of Canberra on the Monaro Highway. The railway to the town opened in 1887 and closed in 1989 (along with the rest of the line from Queanbeyan to Cooma). Since 1993 the line has operated as a heritage railway, however passenger trains have not been south of Royalla (approx 23 km north) since 1997. It is planned that heritage trains will soon return to Michelago. Today the railway is disused between Michelago and Chakola and a 1990s resurfacing of the Monaro Highway north of Bredbo cut the railway which crossed the highway.
