MRAG is now one of the most active and exhibition vibrant regional galleries in NSW with almost 3000sq metres of public access space.
Admission is free and we partook of the Passchendaele 100th anniversary photographic exhibition. This gallery has many different one-off Exhibitions and is well worth a look-in. The lady on the counter was excellent, informative and friendly. And don't leave without stopping at the cafe that has excellent coffee and desserts.

I love my prison tours having had spent time in one as a prison nurse. Maitland is a beauty because it only closed 20 years ago. Access available to most areas. Staff great and the audio tour, featuring voice diaries of 'inmates' and 'screws' was excellent. Port Arthur in Tasmania and this are two of the very best.

Love this new (since 2015) location. Although the Warners Bay store is closer, I'm glad I decided to go and check out Thornton. We ate at the cafe and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Lovely atmosphere with indoor and out door Seating. Loved the little museum, it was really well set out and interesting. Service was fantastic, very helpful staff. I've always worn only Mortels uggs. They are well worth the money. Will definitely be back to eat at the cafe

A fantastic, well maintained park with loads of stimulating activities for young kids and an excellent pool / water feature. Can get hot food from the pool without paying to get in or BBQ your own. A swing is available for those in wheelchairs too! Well done Maitland Council.

We debated whether or not to visit. How glad we were that we did. So much history about our early settlers and the various immigrants many of whom created everyday familiar products. The courthouse experience was interesting.

Out for a day drive with friends it was time for lunch after strolling through the shops. The lunch specials are cooked to order and very good value. The prawn cutlets were excellent as was the barra and chips. Good beer selection too.

Located in the historical village of Morpeth in the Lower Hunter Valley, Morpeth Gallery has an excellent selection of fine traditional Australian landscape & wildlife art by internationally and nationally acclaimed artists. The gallery specialises in investment art with pieces which appreciate over time. The gallery opened in 1991 as a part of the Campbell's Store Craft Centre complex.
Great to visit, lots to see, they change the Artists on display on a regular basis, and there is always surprises.. good for the soul to see the different perspectives on display.
