East Maitland Vacation Packages
East Maitland is a popular place to head to while you are exploring Hunter Valley as some of the city’s most popular attractions are within easy driving distance. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s list is the fabulous Oaks Golf Course and the much-loved PepperTree Wines. And don’t miss the Saddlers Creek Wines and the Nobbys Head Beach.
If the sun is out, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and head outside to the local natural destinations. Put on your hiking shoes and discover the natural parks for which this area is well known, like the Hunter Valley Gardens in Pokolbin. On a sunny day, visit Carmichael Park in Mount View, where families can enjoy some time outdoors.
Take a break from the tourist trail and indulge in a game of golf at the Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club in Pokolbin.
Those who are traveling without kids will love an hour or two at the Briar Ridge Vineyard in Mount View, Brokenwood Wines in Pokolbin and the David Hook Wines.
Those who are into sports can cheer on the Newcastle Knights rugby league team in winter and the Newcastle Jets soccer team at the iconic EnergyAustralia Stadium, Newcastle, the sporting heart and soul of the city. After the game, follow the throngs of local sports obsessives to the nearby pubs to either celebrate, or commiserate, depending on the score.
After spending the day exploring the delights of East Maitland, rest up in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, Lovedale, the Harrigan's Irish Pub & Accommodation, Pokolbin and the Novotel Newcastle Beach are just some of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
