Description

Maitland was named in 1872 after Lady Jean Maitland, the wife of the First Lord of Kilkerran. The local aboriginal name for the area was 'madu waltu', meaning white flint. The town's layout was designed to be like Adelaide, with plenty of parklands and straight streets, making it a very pretty town. It sits on top of a ridge, overlooking Spencer Gulf and the fertile Yorke Valley.replacenewlinereplacenewlineVisit the 'Heart of Maitland' where there is plenty of room to park the caravan and see the bronze sculpture of a Clydesdale, representing a bygone era when farmers were dependent on their horses. The Maitland Markets, also located here, are open every Thursday and Friday between 10am and 4pm. Wander in and have a look at the range of interesting goods for sale.
