George Ernest Morisson (1862 - 1920) was an Australian adventurer[?].

Later, he was correspondant for The Times in Beijing, China, and subsequently travelled from Beijing to British occupied Burma via Yunnan. His book An Australian in China[?] details his experiences on that journey. The book Morisson of Peking is a biography by Cyril Pearl[?].
