For the first time in the Gaol’s 175 year history, visitors will be able to stride out on the walkks and take in Maitland Gaol from a new perspective.
We’ve opened up access to tow of the Gaol’s existing towers, affording visitors the opportunity to climb up a spiral staircase inside the sandstone walls, past the barbed wire and out onto the metal catwalks that were once patrolled by the Gaol’s officers.
The Tower Tour is proudly supported by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, through the 2020-21 Experience Enhancement Fund.
This new visitor experience is in addition to more than $11.7 million worth of works which form part of the Maitland Gaol Development Plan.
The project meets the below key areas as outlined by the plan.
