We pick you up this morning from home and travel north to Lake Macquarie for a Luncheon Cruise.

On a Lake twice the size of Sydney Harbour, we will enjoy commentary from the Captain whilst looking for dolphins. After leaving the cruise we make our way to our accommodation for the next two nights. During our stay at the Old Maitland Inn we will enjoy a traditional Yulefest Dinner, celebrating Christmas in the Winter like they do in the Northern Hemisphere. Old Maitland Inn

Next, we travel to Morpeth for a Driving Guided Tour with the Local Guide. Here we learn about the History of the Town, the
Hunter River, and the growth of the Town in conjunction with Sydney and Newcastle. See where business like Arnotts, Sims Metal, Soul Patterson, and other people all started their businesses. After the tour there is time to soak up the diverse range of boutiques, cafes, galleries and scenery that make up this beautiful Village. After leaving Morpeth it is a short drive to the Maitland Gaol. We will be met by our Local Guide who will immerse us in the history of the gaol, telling us stories of all sorts of heroes and villains. The Guide with give us a most informative tour of the 150 year old institution.
