ART IN THE HEART

Meet us in Central Maitland, the heart beat of the city. Home to Maitland Regional Art Gallery, historic buildings, The Levee and much more. Grab a coffee and discover Maitland’s rich history, and vibrant arts and cultural scene. Our colourful laneways, picturesque Riverwalk and creators are waiting for you!

FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD

Follow your taste buds on a delicious trail of farm gates, wineries, classic country pubs and gourmet food experiences. Dine out like a local on Maitland’s best produce, stock up at the Slow Food Earth Markets, and book a walking tour worthy of your Instagram. Stay for a glass, cooking class or dessert you won’t forget. 

MAKING MEMORIES

Pack a picnic and watch the birds at Walka Recreation and Wildlife Reserve, drop the kayak in at Lorn Riverbank or burn off some energy with a ride by the river. Reward the kids with a visit to Maitland Gaol, Miss Lily’s Lollies or Ometto Pizza Bar before taking the doggo for a run at the nearest dog park.
