We went on a tour of the Mount Morgan gold mining site and the town itself. Unfortunately I didn't find the tour very interesting and wish I didn't go in the first place. The tour guide had a lot of knowledge about the place that seemed very trivial to me. I felt strange to be in a tour about a... More

We went there, but there were no tours, we didnt realise you have to ring the tour and he will take you out if there are enough attendees. We were able to view the goldmine from the lookout and it was worth the drive, and to check out the town where time has stood still, there's a great op shop... More

Mt. Morgan is a town that rose and fell with its gold mine, which has gone from wealth generator to an environmental challenge of significant proportions. Definitely take the 2h tour if you are in town. The knowledgable guide helps put what you see into context and you actually get on the site of the old mine this way. But... More

Mount Morgan is a great place to experience want a mining town was like 100 years ago. Little has changed it seems, but far fewer people there! Worth a drive around to look at the buildings and houses and to visit the museums that evoke the mine and town that earned the money to underpin the start of British Petroleum.... More

what a wonderful trip on the coaster bus. A very informative talk was given all through our trip and various points of interest also pointed out to all of us. The mine itself was a true eye opener. The old time machinery the men were working with and the heat must have been unbearable. They must have been tough in... More

The two-hour tour was informative and it was great being able to visit the mine and learned its history. Also get recommended to a great café at an old hotel, and browse at the museum and vintage store.

Mt Morgan is a great place to visit and drive around to look at the old houses and buildings. The mine visit is very interesting and amazing to visualise times gone by. the bakery in the main street has the best pies and cakes in CQ.

Would recommend the two hour mini bus tour of the town and mine and museum. This little town needs rescuing. Lovely little houses from the heyday of the town and shops begging to be loved and restored.The museum is very well done and very interesting and the tour guide is very well informed. The Mafeking Bell is even in the... More
