Maitland River Regatta perfect setting for summer fun


See out the school holidays with a serene summer’s day on the Hunter River, during the Maitland River Regatta on Australia Day.

Starting at Lorn’s RH Taylor Reserve on Wednesday 26 January, patrons can purchase a boat hire ticket and float on down the Hunter River to Lorn Beach.

Tickets are priced at $15 for a one or two-person vessel.

With free activities and entertainment, plus food and drink options, there is something for the entire family to enjoy at either end of the regatta route.

“We are thrilled to bring this exciting new event to Maitland with the help of our friends at Spark Event Group,” Maitland City Council events officer Tori Evans said.

“We want to highlight the Hunter River and Lorn Beach in a unique way.

“So, we encourage the community to enjoy the beautiful outdoors during the warmer summer weather.”

The event will start about 3pm and conclude at 7pm.
