This November, the finale of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championships will hit the streets of Newcastle with the Coates Hire Newcastle 500. If you’re looking for a place to set up camp, then you’re welcome in Maitland.

Maitland is located 40 minutes north west of Newcastle and is easily accessible by car or public transport including rail. If you need easy access to the Newcastle 500 event then catching the train is the best option to avoid traffic congestion and car parking in the Newcastle CBD. Transport NSW runs regular services from Maitland to Newcastle via the Hunter Line, which will deliver you right to the starting line at the event.

Maitland offers a range of accommodation options for every budget from quaint bed and breakfasts, country retreats, modern apartments and classic motel and pub stays. The city also has a range of entertainment and leisure activities to suit everyone. You can enjoy a day of shopping, exploring the countryside and unique villages, enjoying a water sport on the Hunter River, visiting the city’s key attractions such as Maitland Regional Art Gallery and Maitland Gaol or simply relaxing with a book and coffee in one of the city’s many cafes.

Whether you are here for a visit, a short time or a lifetime, the one thing you can be sure of is that you’re welcome in Maitland.
