Morven - Cities, Towns and Localities
Originally called Saddlers Waterhole, this small pleasant town of Morven offers a casual rest stop and great fishing on the Warrego River. The town also was home to the famous Kenniff brothers (bushrangers).

The Kenniff brothers of which James and Patrick were the most well known were famous for their horse stealing and cattle duffing around this area in the early 1900's. In 1902 the two brothers were also charged with the murder of Constable George Doyle and a station hand Christian Dahlke. The bodies were burnt, however the charred remains were found in the saddle bags of Constable Doyle. A massive police hunt ensued until finally they were caught near Mitchell. The two were found guilty of murder and ended up in the notorious St Helena Island penal settlement.

10km south of Morven is the Tregole National Park home to the rare Ooline Tree's.
