Morpeth Museum

The museum hosts a range of permanent exhibitions that tell the story of Morpeth including the railway, housing, working industries and families. These are supported by a suite of ever changing exhibitions that can focus on different themes of Morpeth and as new and interesting historical elements are discovered or restored.

Exhibitions range from early and family history to specific industries as well as the modern perspective.


Mortels Sheepskin Factory is a multi-sward winning Australian owned family business in the Hunter Region, two hours north of Sydney, and is the oldest continuously operating ugg boot factory in the world. Visit the Museum and book a guided tour through the factory. Located out the front are the ‘big ugg boots’ which provides the perfect photo opportunity.

Maitland Park ticks all the boxes. It is a great place to enjoy with lots of shade, green spaces ideal for kicking a ball around, accessible toilets, a shared pathway that winds around the entire park and a fully fenced all-abilities playground. Pack the kids scooters and bikes and let their imagination run free on the pretend road completed with signs, crossings, speed bumps and refuelling area.
