This famous wharf was and still remains one of the most impressive examples of it's kind on the entire Murray River. As Port Morgan became a huge success, during the height of the Paddle Steamer trade between 1880 and 1915, the massive 550 meter, red and blue gum wharf had 5 water hydraulic cranes, with gangs of up to 50 men working continuous 24 hour shifts. Today's remaining section of wharf was restored between 1996 and 1998.
