One of Maitland's premier stops, Maitland Gaol ceased service as a correctional facility in 1998, After housing some of Australia's most hardened and notorious criminals, Maitland Gaol closed in 1998. Now, the cell doors are open again and you can take a self-guided audio tour, a themed-guided tour or torchlight tour by night.
Pretty countryside surrounds the town, so enjoy strolling along the river walk precinct to admire the Hunter River, dine by the riverbank at a cafe or head to a stylish heritage pub.
There are plenty of things to see and do around Maitland. Don't miss the Maitland Regional Art Gallery or the National Trust-listed Grossmann House to gain insight into Maitland's cultural heritage. Also, the Australian Museum of Clothing and Textiles and Maitland Gaol make for an eclectic historical experience. Close by are many fine cellar doors, where you can sample local boutique wines, including fruit wines made from fresh local produce.
