WE ARE OPEN
Maitland Gaol has reopened the site to visitors. Interaction with the site is a little different so make sure you check out the new guidelines.
There are three self guided audio tours available seven days a week, each providing a different perspective of the life behind the bars.
Snitch knows a thing or two about the Gaol and he certainly knows how to have fun! Check out some of the great activities to do at home.
Looking for Gaol themed online content? Check out our recommended lists or enjoy glimpses of our virtual tours (coming soon).
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.
