Great Train Race and Morpeth
Take your seat on the Great Train Race, with up to four steam engines racing side by side from Newcastle to Maitland racing the tiger moth airplane overhead. This afternoon, visit historic Morpeth, once a destination for a direct passage from England, this town still has most of its heritage and charming shops to match.
