Mount Morris is a mountain in the far north of South Australia. It is about 1,251 metres (4,104 ft) high, and is the second-highest peak in South Australia after nearby Mount Woodroffe (1,435 m). Both are in the Musgrave Ranges, near the border with the Northern Territory.[1][2] The rock is mostly made up of granite.

Mount Morris is located about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) west of the community of Amaṯa. It was given its name by the explorer William Gosse, who first saw it in July 1873.
