    The self-guided historical tour of Maitland Gaol is very interesting, allow about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It is quite a sobering experience to enter the cells, which have been left in much the same c...  more »

    Very impressed with the kids matinee movies run at the gaol. They provide bean bags, nibblies are about $3, it's warm and great kids movies. In our case, Ice Age. Will be back!  more »

    Brilliant audio tour. Would certainly recommend you allow a few hours to check the whole place out.

    Went here today 07/6/17, after waiting for the receptionist to get off the phone, she proceeded to serve 2 people who walked in after us, even after they pointed out to her that we were there first, she spent 10mins telling them about all the places in Maitland then when it came to my partner and I, she was blatantly obnoxious, and when asked about other places in Maitland claimed she wasn't really sure.. No idea what we did to piss her off(hope it wasn't race related as we are of Asian appearance), only reason I didn't give this 1 star was due to a super friendly and helpful caretaker we met working in the jail who told us stories about the jail, Maitland and cool things to do, much respect to him!

    Went on the 'Crimes of Passion' night tour. It was very fun (and eerie at times). Both hosts were knowledgeable and friendly.

    Did a visit here while away on a weekend in Maitland. Tour was good but would have loved to learn more about the history about some of the inmates
