Glenmorgan

Car and railway buffs love this little town - Glenmorgan is a small community with lots of character!
Monty's Garage and Vintage Car Museum is like stepping into a auto workshop from the 1940s .. you'll see beautifully, painstakingly restored vintage cars and trucks as well as works in progress and motoring memorabilia. You can also fill up with fuel there.

Visit the end of the railway extension, 'End of the Line' and view memorabilia of the railway in the Shire. Housed in the Glenmorgan Railway Station, it's a must see for railway buffs. Interesting local fact: the streets are all named after family members of one-time Queensland parliamentarian, Minister for Railways, Godfrey Morgan.

Glenmorgan is also home to Myall Park Botanic Gardens, which is an internationally recognised botanic garden, boasting Queensland's oldest collection of Australian semi-arid zone flora. The gardens were developed by amateur botanist David Gordon, AM in the 1940s on the ridge behind his home. He and his family then spent the 1950s gathering seeds and cuttings of Australian plants from all over the continent, which they then propagated and then planted over an area which covers more than 130 hectares. Many species planted by David are now extremely rare and sometimes extinct in their own natural habitat. The on-site gallery exhibits superb botanical paintings by his wife, the late Dorothy Gordon. Follow the interpretive signs off the beaten track on foot or on bike, to see the very best specimens.

There's also a hotel and a shop in town. Glenmorgan is located on Surat Development Road between Surat and The Gums.

Meandarra ANZAC Memorial Museum


The Meandarra ANZAC Memorial Museum typifies the bravery and self sacrifice of the first ANZACs, housing a large and comprehensive military memorabilia collected over the past 30 years.
