Morpeth was once a bustling river port due to its location on the banks of the Hunter River. Make the most of the river and take a day cruise from Newcastle to experience the lush surroundings and sparkling water. The relaxing riverside is what creates Morpeth’s unique ambience, with its charming historical buildings. Go on a food trail and explore the gourmet cheeses, warm sourdough, and handmade fudge, with an array of boutiques, cafes and restaurants catering primarily for visitors. Take the Heritage Walk, which will guide you past 25 different places of interest just off the main street (Swan Street).
Stop by Morpeth for a day trip to indulge in its beautiful atmosphere or if you want to extend your stay, choose from a comfortable cottage, guesthouses or lodge. Explore the beautiful heritage cobblestone pathways of Morpeth and the boutiques and decadent food on offer.
