Former Mount Morgan resident stunned by Big Dam’s beauty

Former Mount Morgan resident Margaret Hickey was amazed by the beauty of the Big Dam at Mount Morgan on a recent visit.

When I lived in The Mount, it was drought time and as a hairdresser I was dismayed when there were water restrictions and sometimes no water at all to run my business.

Imagine having a proper water supply coming from a pipeline from the Fitzroy.

How the town would prosper.

I believe numbers of people now come up from Rockhampton to enjoy the Big Dam and its park-like surrounds, picnic tables, barbies and scenic beauty.

It is an amazing tourist attraction.

The birdlife is astounding and the Big Dam is full of fish.

I don't think Rocky has anything like it.

It would be just wonderful if somebody could help the old town out as it has made fortunes for others over the many years of its operation.
