MAKe it maitland this summer

With a raft of events and activities planned for December to February, you’re invited to Make it Maitland this summer.

Alongside the exciting event program, Maitland will also play host to two major events; Skywhales: Every Heart Sings and the 2021 Archibald Prize exhibition.




THE ArchibAld Prize

The Archibald Prize is turning 100 and you’re invited to join in the celebrations. The country’s oldest and most loved art exhibition is coming to Maitland Regional Art Gallery this January. Awarded to the best portrait painting, it’s a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.


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 Earth Markets Maitland, and book a walking tour worthy of your Instagram. Stay for a glass, cooking class or dessert you won’t forget. 


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.
