Newcastle to Morpeth - cheapest way

by Karolline

Hi,
What is the cheapest/easiest way to get from Newcastle to Morpeth?
Thanks for replies!
Karla

RE: Newcastle to Morpeth - cheapest way

by Lorena1978

The cheapest and easiest way to go to Morpeth is:
Go to the web site:www.nationalrail.co.uk in there you can book a ticket that will cost you 2.80 pounds and it will take around 20 minutes.
Hope that helps.
Have a good journey, regards,
Lorena

RE: RE: Newcastle to Morpeth - cheapest way

by FleurFox

I think maybe the above answer is in regards to the UK. In New South Wales, Ausralia, Morpeth is a 30 minute drive from Newcastle or a 1.5 hour bus trip.
You can go to www.cityrail.com.au and click on the trip planner to see what number bus you should catch. I think you have to change buses mid journey.

If you're in town when I'm home and not travelling in the motorhome, Rosemarie and I could run you up.
I don't know if you're in to cycling but that's another alternative. I race and have a spare bike in the garage if you want a loan of that.
Other than that the train/bus is the only way.
Cheers.

Travel Tips for Newcastle

Will fill this out more...

by Bodhran

Will fill this out more completely when I dig out my scrapbooks! Definitely liked waking up to sound of surf. Went off season and had a seaside room with balcony for reasonable price. The bartender took Pam and I on a round of wine tasting the next day in his sports car! We had a blast. We met some amazing characters! the charming people and the view of the ocean from our room

Welcome, it's our Destiny

by iandsmith

It's an eyecatcher. This welcoming scupture aimed at seafaring folk casts its genial light every night across the waters of the harbour.
Not quite the Statue of LIberty but, we're only a small town by comparison and the French probably don't love us as much (especially since we started making wine seriously).
The statue sits at the eastern extremity of the suburb of Carrington but is visible all the way down the harbour.
It is entitled "Destiny" and is a reminder of the prows that used to grace the sailing ships that once were stacked three deep along the foreshore.
The flowing hair behind her represents the seven seas.
1999 Destiny – Dyke Point Newcastle Port Corporation, sculpture to commemorate 200th anniversary Newcastle port operations. Bronze height 8.5m x 3m x 2.5m.
The sculptor was reknowned artist Julie Squires whose CV, especially while she was studying at Newcastle University, is impressive to say the least. Listed below are other commissions she has completed though her latest, the one at the start of The Great Ocean Road, is not registered here but you can find out about that on my Lorne pages. 1999 The Muster point – Newcastle BHP Steelworks Industrial Drive, Newcastle
Memorial sculpture for Newcastle BHP Steelworkers commemorating the closure of the Steelmaking Plant. Sculpture resulted from an artist initiated project with the Workers Cultural Action Committee called The Molten Arts Project. Following an eighteen month artist residency at the Steelworks, The Muster Point was constructed in the Fabrication Shop on site by the artist and BHP employees. Fabricated steel height 8m x 16m 12m. Weight 70 tone.

1999 Sea Eagle motifs -West Charlestown Bypass Roads & Traffic Association Bas relief sculptures, cast concrete. 1m x .75m

1998 Newcastle Port Corporation, Port Entry Walls Eight Bronze cast bas relief sculptures for gateway to Carrington Port Authority. Eight x 2m x 1.5m

1997 By The Lake – Lake Macquarie City Council 26 Bronze cast bas relief sculptures. .25m x .3m

1996 Nobby's Break Wall Newcastle Bicentenery Commission me theme, cast concrete. 3m x 1m

1995 Connection - Constable & Hershon Vineyard Figurative cast bronze sculpture. Two figures 2m x 1.75m

1995 Journey - Castle Tavern King St, Newcastle Figurative cast iron and steel sculpture. 4m x 2m

An excuse

by iandsmith

This is just an excuse to put a couple of my sunset shots on display. They're far from being my best but give you an idea of what the harbour looks like from the carpark at Nobbys. Just thought I'd share them with you.

Bring beachwear and a camera

by rac3rx

Beach gear, and sunscreen (you can burn very quickly here). usually our weather obeys the seasonal norms, but occasionally it goes haywire (the two photos were taken from the same spot an hour apart in Sept '04) everything is readily available same with photo equipment plenty of great camping locations in surrounding area so if you're into that sort of thing, go for it ..you might want to bring your drinking cap too. We like a beer or two around here

Port Stephen - Sandboarding

by kielorla

If you drive for 1 hr to Port Stephen, you can experience surfing in the sand dunes or experience the 4 wheels drive tour.
