Morgan - Cities, Towns and Localities

At the height of the paddle steamer era, Morgan was once the busiest port in South Australia. Today the historic town is a popular holiday retreat located on a bend in the Murray River known as the 'Great Bend', 'North West Bend', or the 'Great Elbow'.

The restored wharf precinct captures the early river trading times, whilst the heritage walk takes you on a voyage pass historic landmarks and leading to a panoramic view of the town and river.

Charles Sturt passed the site of the town on his voyage down the Murray and back in 1830. The town was proclaimed in 1878, the same year that the railway line from Adelaide via Kapunda was officially opened.
