Maitland Gaol

On Sunday, Wayne and I went on a date to Maitland Gaol.  Not the normal place for a date, but when Nanna is babysitting we take the opportunity to see local sites.  I won two tickets a few months ago so we headed to Maitland (about 40mins drive north) for a tour of the infamous gaol.

Maitland Gaol has a vibrant history spanning more than 150 years. After housing some of Australia's most hardened and notorious criminals, Maitland Gaol closed as a Correctional Institution in 1998.
