Morpeth, situated on the banks of the Hunter River, was once the gateway to inland Australia and one of the busiest trade ports in NSW. Today you can re-live the historic voyage from Newcastle to Morpeth in modern day style and comfort with NOVA Cruises. Upon arrival wander down cobbled streets to find colonial sandstone buildings occupied by modern and inviting cafes, pubs, galleries, museums, boutiques, antique shops and local businesses.
Enjoy Morning Devonshire tea served onboard the vessel and sample some local produce from unique Morpeth businesses including wines from the Morpeth Distillery, fudge from Miss Lilly’s Lollies, and sourdough from Arnott’s Bakehouse on-route to Morpeth. Once in town we will pick up the tab if you wish to visit the Morpeth Museum and arm you with a heritage walk guide so you can discover the numerous historic buildings around this once thriving river port.
