Welcome to Mount Morgan

Mount Morgan, Central Queensland, is a picturesque historic town nestled in the Dee Ranges, situated approximately 38 km South West of Rockhampton, and 679 km north of Brisbane.

Rich in history, the former mining town is home to one of the world’s most successful mines to date. Commencing operation in 1882, the mine became one of the richest gold mines in Australia, and for a period of time- the world. During its 99 years of mining the area declared a total of 225 tons of gold, 50 tons of silver and 360,000 tons of copper.

Today Mount Morgan is a quaint area, with a population of approximately 3,000. Getting the best of both worlds, Mount Morgan residents enjoy the comforts of a small semi-rural area; with Rockhampton city just thirty minutes’ drive and Yeppoon’s beaches a one hour drive away.
