If you like living in a city with access to major retailers and public transport, then East Maitland is the place to be.
Situated about 30 kilometres north-west of Newcastle, East Maitland offers all the essentials for a quiet lifestyle. The large property sizes and easy access to Newcastle along the New England Highway or by train make East Maitland an attractive location for those needing an easy commute to Newcastle.
Development in East Maitland started in 1833, ten years after West Maitland. Learning from the issues of the west, the east was deliberately designed with plenty of space for public services and housing.
