Newcastle Off The Beaten Path: 49 reviews and 97 photos

  Rustic Morpeth
by iandsmith

What captures my imagination about the place is probably the architecture that retains its historical ambience.
The convict-hewn sandstone, still with the chisel marks of someone thrown upon these shores nearly 200 years, evokes thoughts of a time when life was so much harsher.
In Australia at least, things are much better now. Oh that it could be the same everywhere else!
