Maitland is a city of great history dating back to the early 1800′s. For many years Maitland was the largest town in New South Wales outside the city of Sydney. This prosperity resulted in wonderful 19th Century architecture both in the business district and residential suburbs, much of which still remains today.
Bolwarra is a leafy, semi rural suburb on Maitland’s northern fringe boasting many examples of 19th Century ‘ gentlemen’s houses ‘. For those bird lovers, there is a wetland reserve within walking distance.
Some of the local activities include:
Bushwalking, Tiger Moth Flights, Ballooning, Horse Riding, River Cruises, and Coach Tours through wineries or Barrington Tops.
Visit historic Maitland Gaol, National Trust Homes, Museums, or wander through the many antique stores.
For those who revel in history, Nova Hollandia Entertainment is a local business which specializes in interactive and educational Knights schools for children. Information on upcoming events and availability firstname.lastname@example.org
