Morkalla is a locality situated at the farthest west point on the Redcliffs-Meringur Road in the Sunraysia region. It is situated about 31 kilometres south east from Yamba in South Australia and 9 kilometres west from Karween. It also lies 11 kilometres due south of the Sturt Highway.

The area was settled by returned servicemen after World War I. The railway was extended to Morkalla in 1931. The passenger facilities were removed in 1939, and the line closed in 1964 after only being used to transport wheat for many years.[2]
