The area that surrounds Maitland Gaol is of great interest to our visitors and many locals in our area. The Justice Precinct tour explores the complex relationship between the Gaol and it's surrounds, including the East Maitland Courthouse, Mounted Police Barracks and the many locations of the East Maitland Police Station. The tour unpacks how these buildings became the centre of justice in the East Maitland area, as well as exploring the many uses of areas outside the gaol for prisoners. The aim of the tour is to give an understanding of how the land around the gaol was successfully shared and as such a cooperative relationship was formed between the buildings and their many occupants.
To celebrate the 2019 Heritage Festival Maitland Gaol will be offering this tour for FREE, however bookings are essential.
