East Maitland

Originally the CBD of Maitland, 1830 to 1850 saw in Melbourne St East Maitland a hub of activity. Fine buildings abound from that era, currently featuring businesses including fine restaurants, cafes, antique, speciality and home renovation stores. Lawes Street offers a traditional shopping centre. The beautiful churches St Peters and St Josephs overlook the area.

Day and evening tours can be taken of the 150 year old Maitland Gaol, which was recognised to be one of the toughest in the country.

See a bronze tribute to Les Darcy, Australia’s boxing wonder, in King Edward Park and visit his burial place in the Darcy family vault at East Maitland, one of New South Wales’ oldest cemeteries.

With a population of around 8,500 East Maitland has a modern shopping village to address everyday needs from pharmacy to banks, from grocery shops to butchers, from cafes to restaurants, from bakeries to newsagent.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
