Sitting on the outskirts of the Australia’s most renowned wine region and strategically positioned along the Hunter River, Maitland is a regional hub with a storied past – beautifully restored Colonial buildings, the historic Maitland Gaol and a impressive line-up of museums and galleries – people are intrigued by the history that binds this community together.
Not willing to be sidelined by its popular neighbour, the Hunter Valley, Maitland has a lot to offer. From High Street Mall to Stockland Green Hill, Maitland is teeming with cafes, eateries, and local watering-holes that stay true to Aussie pub fare, as well as fashion boutiques, speciality stores and department store giants. The Hunter River and the levee offer a beautiful backdrop and at every turn you’re met with good old-fashioned country hospitality.
Growing families are well-catered for, not only with the impressive number of schools scattered throughout the greater Maitland area, but also with the amount of sporting facilities on offer – rugby, basketball, netball, hockey, soccer – they all have a place here. Then there is the festival line-up throughout the year that celebrates the regions heritage, music, food and wine. There is so much to this vibrant centre, and people are noticing.
