Maitland’s emergence as a culinary hotspot has seen a marked increase in the quality culinary options available to residents and visitors alike. The My Taste Drive provides people with the opportunity to sample a variety of wares without committing to a sit down meal.

Starting in Morpeth, tempt your tastebuds with a selection of cheeses and cured meats, then satisfy your sweet tooth with the largest range of lollies you are likely to find in one place.

A stop in the neighbouring suburb of Tenambit will be rewarded with some of the finest hand crafted chocolate in the Hunter, before making your way to East Maitland where you can peruse the shelves for all your organic food needs.

A short drive through Maitland and across the Belmore Bridge, finish your trip in the leafy suburb of Lorn with a coffee and decadent pastry or handcrafted treat.
