Cookardinia: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Round Hill Hotel


Some time before 1874, Aneurin Heriot sold Ed Culnane allotments numbers nine and ten, section 32 in the Morven Township, for just 20 pounds. This was the land on which the Round Hill Hotel now stands.

It was first named the Bridge Hotel and the year that the Hotel first started trading is not known. The year 1868 has been mentioned but not verified. The name was changed to Round Hill Hotel around 1959 after it left the hands of the O'Donoghue family.

On visiting the Hotel today, you can view interesting old photographs and information relating to the history of Morven as well as the original Cobb and Co stables.

Enjoy an ice cold beverage or something from the bistro menu. Enjoy regular live music and great food specials regularly. See the website for what's on.

Cobb and Co Stables Morven


Experience the Cobb and Co way, take an easier trip back in time when the coach rolled over flat terrain and tranquil creeks.

Cobb and Co 'Changing Stations' were established by 1877. The route for the run was Wagga Wagga, Cookardinia, Morven, Gerogery and Albury, via Magloplah. Changing stations were set up where the horses could be changed and passengers could take a break.

The Cobb and Co Stables at Morven are situated beside the historic Round Hill Hotel, dating back to the 1850s when the hotel was a Cobb and Co Station.

The decline of Cobb and Co came with the arrival of the Railway line through nearby Culcairn, and today the stables stand as a reminder of times gone past.

John McLeans Memorial


Visitors to Culcairn are able to see the memorial site of John McLean, one of two local victims of the infamous bushranger, Dan Morgan.

'Mad Dan' Morgan was one of the most unpleasant bushrangers of his time. Morgan operated in the Henty, Culcairn, Morven, Gerogery and Tumbarumba area over several years, and was remembered for the notorious murder of local man, John McLean.

McLean fell victim to Mad Dan in 1864 when Morgan 'visited' Round Hill Station. Morgan confronted Mrs Watson, the wife of the manager, demanding food. A gunfight between Morgan ensued and McLean was fatally wounded.

The memorial of John McLean can be found on the Culcairn Holbrook Road, five minutes drive from Culcairn.

Visitors interested in the notorious legend of Mad Dan can also visit other landmarks including the memorial of Sergeant Smyth in Henty and Morgan's Lookout, the hideout he used to evade police.
