Disabled access and facilities

Wheelchair access

The site is generally accessible for visitors with wheelchairs and other mobility aids, with assistance. While ramps are available into most buildings, they may not be at fully compliant gradients and assistance may be required. Some areas are accessed through doorways which are too narrow for modern mobility aids. Access is not available to floors above ground level other than in the Chapel. A special audio tour map is available to provide directions around those areas where access is restricted. 

Access for the deaf and hearing impaired

The Maitland Gaol Revealed self guided audio tour is now available for the deaf and hearing impaired in either Auslan / Captions or Audio / Captions. This audio tour is available using a smartphone app called OpenAccess Tours that can be downloaded in advance or alternatively it is available on site through the use of the gaol's iPods. For more information on OpenAccess Tours click here.
