Maitland REGIONAL ART GALLERY
Maitland Regional Art Gallery, or MRAG for short as locals passionately call it, is a community driven public gallery where everyone is always welcome and entry is free.
Since its closure in 1998 as an operational correctional facility, the Gaol has made an impressive transformation into one of the Hunter region’s iconic tourist attractions and a must add to your travel bucket list.
Walka Water Works
Walka Water Works features picnic and barbecue facilities and a children’s playground area. The area is also available for outdoor weddings and functions.
The Levee is the perfect backdrop to the city, linking the city to the river, making for an ideal stroll that captures the historic architecture dotted along the city’s High Street before looping back along the river bank.
Maitland Park ticks all the boxes. It is a great place to enjoy with lots of shade, green spaces ideal for kicking a ball around, accessible toilets, a shared pathway that winds around the entire park and a fully fenced all-abilities playground. Pack the kids scooters and bikes and let their imagination run free on the pretend road completed with signs, crossings, speed bumps and refuelling area.
Morpeth Brewery is a small, independent, artisan brewery that has proudly been brewing handcrafted beers on the premises of the Commercial Hotel since 2012.
