Really enjoyable afternoon exploring the historic town of Mt Morgan and the gold mine. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgable and the dinosaur footprints in the caves were well worth seeing. I took my teenage kids and they had a blast.

An awesome drive up the range from Rocky on the Burnett Hwy. Stopped at the Railway Station=Tourist Centre where we were cordially received by an older man who narrated us very enthusiastic the whole story about Mount Morgan and its big man dug whole! A very nice rest area at the Dam and beautiful lookouts!

a short drive from Rockhampton Mount Morgan is well worth a half-day trip. I didn't do the mine tour but there was still lots to look at - dam, drive around the mine, suspension bridge are fun for the kids
