Thanks to popular demand, self-guided night tours of Maitland Gaol will return for a limited run from Friday.

Maitland Gaol Under Lights will return to the facility on May 12 along with the Gourmet BBQ and Hi-Top Coffee vans from 5.30pm. 

The Gaol, a hotspot for Australian crime history fans and paranormal investigators alike, will officially open for the event between 6.00pm and 9.30pm (last entry at 8.30pm).

“Opening the Gaol at night last year proved to be a huge success and we had great participation from the community,” Gaol coordinator Gordon Sauber said. 

“The self guided audio tours are interesting, informative and lots of fun, and running them at night really provides an interesting new perspective for our visitors to enjoy.”
