A GUIDE TO HELP YOU IN YOUR SEARCH FOR A PLACE TO LIVE, OR INVEST, IN NEWCASTLE, LAKE MACQUARIE OR MAITLAND

Maitland offers a modern lifestyle with history richer than an Arnott’s double chocolate Tim Tam.

Maitland sits on the New England Highway and is only 35 kilometres from the Newcastle CBD.

“Prior to the invention of rail, the river was used to move cargo and Maitland provided the perfect location to load and unload goods for the Hunter Valley.”

Formerly called West Maitland, the area started as a privately founded town, but its location along the Hunter River bought in settlers from all over the country. Prior to the invention of rail, the river was used to move cargo and Maitland provided the perfect location to load and unload goods for the Hunter Valley.

Aside from its beautiful heritage buildings, Maitland is now well known for its markets, events and festivals like the Maitland Show, Hunter Valley Steamfest and Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival. Maitland was also the home town of many historical figures, including famous Australian biscuit maker William Arnott and founder of the Bell Shakespeare Company, John Bell.

Why rent in Maitland?

One of the town’s attractions is the Maitland Regional Art Gallery, which houses exhibition for local and touring artists, featuring all styles of art from the traditional to the contemporary.

Maitland Hospital is the only public hospital within the area. The hospital has a 24-hour emergency department and also provides several important health services, including paediatric and coronary care.

Maitland Public School is the suburb’s only public primary school and feeds into the high schools in East Maitland. St John the Baptist Primary School is the other K-6 school in the suburb. The only high school in the area is All Saints College, which is split over two campuses. The St Peter’s Campus covers years 7 to 10, while the St Mary’s campus caters for Year 11 and 12.

Residential properties in Maitland range from colonial-style houses to newly built modern homes. Around the city centre you’ll find townhouses and units, while closer to the border there are more sprawling properties.
