East Maitland Heritage Walk

Overview

The ‘Government town’ of East Maitland, as it was known, was officially proclaimed in 1833. The Heritage Walk features buildings of stature like Maitland Gaol, East Maitland Court House, and sites associated with convict history and persons of interest like Caroline Chisholm and Les Darcy. Glebe Cemetery, considered to be of State level significance, is also a site on the walk to deliberate days of old.

Attractions include Caroline Chisholm’s cottage (1840), St. Peter’s Church of England (1886) and 27 other old buildings and sites.

Informative maps giving the history of buildings can be obtained from the Maitland Visitors Centre, on the corner of New England Highway and Les Darcy Drive, Maitland.
