Duckenfield

Overview

The town of Duckenfield is located on the banks of the Hunter River surrounded by rich pasture and farmlands. It was originally part of the estate of the wealthy landowner and businessman John Eales from 1799 to 1871. You can still view two of the estate’s houses, Berry Park House and Berry House along Duckenfield Road.

Duckenfield sits six kilometres from the historic river port of Morpeth and has beautiful views across the plains to the Hunter River. The town and neighbouring Berry Park offer a mix of Georgian architecture and modern housing. The area has bred fine racehorses and is known as a horse-breeding region today.
