Morven, Queensland

Morven image

In 1859 on the mail route from Brisbane to Charleville, a small area was taken from the property Victoria Downs and set aside for public use and designated on maps and documents as 'Victoria Downs Reserve'. It became known informally as 'Sadlier's Waterhole' when Captain TJ Sadlier and his wife camped at the property. When the town was officially surveyed in 1880 it was called Morven. Originally chosen as an ideal camping spot for early travellers into the Outback, a settlement formed. Even today Morven, with its garden beds and picnic tables, is regarded as a good place to take a break from driving. Enjoy a break and picnic overlooking Sadliers Waterhole at Hamburg Creek, once a stopover for bullock teams and Cobb and Co. Morven Museum houses a must-see collection of handcrafted, perfectly recreated miniature buildings from the bark and slab hut days of early Outback settlement, as well as an original kerosene tin hut. Just 10 kilometres south of Morven is Tregole National Park. Discover the rare Ooline Tree, a rainforest remnant right here in the Outback. Take a break overlooking Sadliers Waterhole or explore the Four Wheel Drive stock route trails.
