From home to Morgan is about a two hour trip; maybe a little longer depending on how long we stop in Burra which is about halfway. Sometimes it's a brief rest stop and other times it's a meal

We were the first to arrive and with a little time to wait we had a quick look around and took a few pictures.
Tourist information centre located in one of the old rail buildings
Morgan used to also be a river port and I can only guess but I would say this was built as monument for those days and for the kids to play on.
The old paddle wheel steamer PS Canally is being restored
The old Morgan wharf.
There's also a small rail museum with some the rolling stock left in place.
One of the few ski boats on the river. This one is a skier recovery boat. The skier gets on the flat section in front of the motor and is taken back to shore or back to the boat they come from.
Looking across the river to the ferry. It's free and runs 24/7 and operated by the states highway department. One of members is on the ferry ramp; just right of the tree.
Our Honda ST1300A up front with the one behind arriving while we were taking pictures. Two different reds because they are made in different years.
Three more bikes arriving and they all came across on the ferry.
I think Fish and Chips was the most favoured meal of the day from the local cafe.
Not long after lunch it was time for some to leave and before we left I took a few more pictures.
Near the park entrance is the remains an old turn table which was used to turn the steam engines around. Not so important these days as most diesel engines can be driven from either end.

Another view of the paddle wheel model plus one of the water towers used to fill the steam engine's water tank.
And a brick rail track as another monument to the past.
