Information

This monument commemorates the exploration voyage along the Murray River and back in 1830 and later led a Exploration team to Central Australia in 1844 in the hope of finding of what they thought was going to be a vast inland sea, that many early Australian Explorers hoped to find. On both of Sturt's expeditions, he passed the present site of Morgan.
