A key anchor attraction of the Hunter, Maitland Gaol has a vibrant history spanning more than 150 years. After housing some of Australia's most hardened and notorious criminals, Maitland Gaol closed as a Correctional Institution in 1998.
The cell doors have now been swung open, with visitors invited to 'serve time' learning about the facility, past prisoners and daring escapes.
