Glenmorgan

Glenmorgan is a small community with lots of character. 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. Don’t forget to check out the street names, all named after the Member for State and Minister for Railway, Godfrey Morgan’s family.

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 onsite 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.
