ENJOY A HIGH TEA
Ducks In The Field
With good weather expected over the weekend, why not indulge in a high tea in a beautiful country setting? The team at Ducks In The Field have recently released their new winter menu which is sure to warm your appetite. For more information, including how to make a booking, visit here.
Just outside of the city, Maitland has so much beautiful countryside to explore. Why not jump in the car and explore it with the family? Starting from Morpeth, you can take in the rolling hills and green scapes through Largs, Rosebrook and Luskintyre before ending up in Lochinvar, all within an hour. Pack a picnic lunch and take a pit stop at Bolwarra Lookout during the drive, or stop into True Cafe or the Lochinvar Hotel for lunch at the end of the journey.
Bakers Brickyard Dog Park
Exercise isn't only for us, our four legged friends need it as well. Maitland has a number of parks and reserves where dogs may be exercised off their lead, from the riverbank at Lorn through to the Bakers Brickyard Dog Park at Raworth. To find an off leash area near you, or to brush up on the rules around use, please visit here.
In great news for movie lovers, both Hoyts Green Hills and Reading Cinemas are open and ready to welcome you and your family back to the cinemas. Certain restrictions remain in place, so visit their websites to find out more about these, and the session times.
