Unlock the gates of Maitland Gaol today, where visitors are invited to 'serve time' learning about the facility, past prisoners and daring escapes. A key anchor attraction of the Hunter, Maitland Gaol housed some of Australia's most hardened and notorious criminals and has a vibrant history spanning more than 150 years.
Friday 14 July will be your last opportunity to explore Maitland Gaol at night with a self guided audio tour as part of Under Lights. Take your time to explore the site at your own pace under the soft glow of the security lights.
The Gaol will be open from 6.30pm to 9.30pm (last entry at 8.30pm).
Following on from the success of the Ghost Hunting 101 tour, Maitland Gaol is excited to announce the latest addition to our tour portfolio, Advanced Ghost Hunting, which will offer participants up to four hours to scour the site in search of paranormal activity.
