A glimpse of history is not the only indulgence that Maitland can provide. If you are feeling adventurous, Skydive Maitland is an amazing experience to get your adrenaline pumping. Being the highest skydiving location in Australia with 14,000 ft, you can reach a speed for 200 kph after free falling for the first 60 seconds. The parachute is then deployed by your tandem master, giving you just enough time to soak in the beauty of Barrington Tops, Hunter Valley Vineyards, and Newcastle Beaches.
Maitland Gaol is a heritage building that had been developed from a prison house to a venue for special occasion. This was open seven days a week for tourists who are coming from the nearby cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. The available services within the place include the self-guided tour, couriers and the so called torchlight tours which you can enjoy if you are not really afraid of the dark! Imagination is your limit with what you can experience in Maitland. Another world awaits, just come and take a look.
