An email from 2008... Last week we visited Morpeth. Suddenly the sound of pounding hoofs filled the air and like a vision from the past a majestic Clydesdale mare with her wagon trotted by and stoped. Soon she was surrounded. “ Admiration can’t buy her food , hop on V take you for a ride” proclaimed the driver. Like stepping back in time we climbed on board. The big authentic looking carriage pulled by this powerful and loyal horse rumpled passed century old buildings. The pounding of her enormous hoofs the smell and snorting compelled us to reflect on our ancestors and the horse that build this Nation. Singing a song to the beat of the clip clop while holding the reins was the highlight for the children. For us Morpeth is simply the town where Juliet lives....Now 3 years later 15000 people who came for a ride agree, no other Town near Sydney offers such variety of unique stores ,restaurants ,historic buildings natural beauty and a Horse Carriage. Juliet and I are proud to contribute to the charm of Morpeth. Hop on and keep us on the job keep Morpeth look the part. Hay !

That kind man does not run the business anymore, according to a local, as at 9 July, 2016. So, you may need to put something else into your plan. This is really a very quiet and small town. Good for a walk.

We visited Morpeth this weekend and had dinner at Arnotts (absolutely fantastic), morning tea at the servants quarters (the freshest country food for many years and wonderful people) and finished off a most beautiful trip to this quaint country town with a ride on a horsedrawn cart pulled by Juliet the Clydesdale. Dieter her carer has a wealth of knowledge... More

Dieter and Juliet(the horse) provide a trip thru historic Morphett which is enlightening and fun. At $6- per person it is a great way to hear about the history and have a close encounter with the lovely Juliet!

What a nostalgic experience, Travelling the streets of Morpeth on the Horse drawn Carriage. The lovely Clydesdale " Juliet " is such a sweet patient girl,and Dieter is such an historian, giving up the history of Morpeth on his travel. I would recommend stepping back in time and taking some time out of the fast lane and making a trip... More
