The guide was really good to us, even though we were the only ones on his tour. Mt Morgan mine is not in operation anymore, but it was an insight to learn about the town.

Enjoyed our tour and the history of the mine. Due to safety issues we were unable to see the dinosaur footprints. The old admin building had some great displays. Very interesting town with some great attractions, the museum and the rail museum are def worth a look as well and don't forget to buy a pie from the bakery, mmmmmmmm!
