Retail Shopping

As you would expect of a major rural city centre, Maitland boasts the full range of local, national and international retail outlets. The two main shopping districts, The Levee in Central Maitland and Stockland Green Hills (Australia’s best performing sub-regional shopping centre), offer a highly diverse selection of speciality and department stores.

Huge investments in retail developments in the west of the City at Rutherford, are creating a new shopping precinct without parallel in the Lower Hunter. With at least three supermarkets, a large number of speciality outlets and a series of major bulky good retail outlets, Rutherford has fast become a retail destination of choice in our region.
