Information

This cutting down to the River is believed to date back to 1850, when passengers would wind themselves across the river. This was also the site for the first official ferry built in Morgan in 1906. Also at the site is a maker showing the various flood heights. The Morgan Ferry is still the only way still to cross the Murray River, even in 2008. The Morgan Historic Walk starts and finishes on the banks of the Murray adjacent to the Morgan ferry crossing.
