In 1859 on the mail route from Brisbane to Charleville, 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 became known informally as 'Sadlier's Waterhole' when Captain TJ Sadlier and his wife camped at the property.
When the town was officially surveyed in 1880 it was called Morven. Originally chosen as an ideal camping spot for early travellers into the Outback, a settlement formed. Even today Morven, with its garden beds and picnic tables, is regarded as a good place to take a break from driving.
While you are there, take the time and browse through the museum which houses a very special collection of miniature buildings (each one a replica of an early Morven building). Venture just ten kilometres south of town to visit Tregole National Park, and walk amongst a forest of extremely rare Ooline trees. The tree has rainforest origins and it is rare to see them growing this far west.
