MORVEN

Morven is your traditional ‘let's get through this place’ hamlet that dots the countries major highways. Morven deserves a more than cursory glance.

In 1859, 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 was on the mail route from Brisbane to Charleville. Later it became informally known as 'Sadlier's Waterhole' after Captain TJ Sadlier and his wife camped at the property. When officially surveyed in 1880, it was officially given the name Morven.

The Museum and footpaths display innovation by its citizens that is both unique and fun. The fact these are donations put on display a great level of community pride. The other museum exhibits are also quite quirky.

There is also a display of some of the regions animal branding ‘brands’. Something different again.

The Morven Hotel is a nondescript offer.

The Morven War Memorial is a significant proposition that begs a deal of thought. The numbers of those that served is very significant.

Morven has only one surviving church.

Morven is a small highway community that deserves refreshment as a minimum
