Maitland Gaol

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

Maitland Gaol offers visitors the opportunity to interpret this unique attraction by indulging in a world-class, self-guided audio tour or take a themed-guided tour or torchlight tour by night.

Only the brave can battle a group sleepover night. Group and specialty tours by arrangement only.

Pre-booked Evening Tours operate.
