Maitland unveils family-friendly summer campaign


Maitland City Council is encouraging everyone to sample a slice of the good life – and venture to the LGA over the next couple of months.

The organisation has launched a new campaign for not only residents, but also visitors, to get out and Make It Maitland this summer.

Revelling in the city’s existing food, cultural, natural and heritage experiences, the latest initiative will be supported by an exciting program of activities and celebrations taking place across the City this summer.

The programming includes the return of Street Eats, outdoor movies in various locations, a pop-up aqua hire at Queens Wharf in Morpeth, Tiger Moth flyovers, a photo competition and much more.

“We want our locals and visitors to really get behind Make it Maitland and enjoy what our great city has to offer this summer,” Maitland mayor Loretta Baker said.

“We’re excited that there are programs that can be enjoyed across the whole city.

“There will be so much going on and something for everyone to get involved in.”

While it will look a little different next year, Australia Day celebrations in 2021 are included in the programming with more details to be announced soon.

As part of the campaign, businesses and community groups are urged to get involved and tell council about their events and activities occurring over summer by visiting

A comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan will be in place for all council-conducted events and activities.

Maitland City Council will continue to monitor and adhere to the advice from the federal and state governments, including any variation or modification of the public health orders.
