Take an intriguing walk through historic Telarah, a rather forgotten suburb of Maitland, with our knowledgeable guides Michael Belcher and Wayne (Huck) Campbell.
In 1854 Telarah Estate was advertised as the “Second Woolloomooloo” or the “retirement abode for professional gentlemen”, before later transforming into a flood free refuge across the Telarah Lagoon for workers – especially mine and railway workers – due to the proximity of nearby collieries and main line railway junctions. Enjoy an eclectic mix of housing – Victorian, Californian bungalows, miners cottages – and the fascinating history of this small suburb.
After the guided heritage walk, enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea of hot and cold finger food, seasonal fruit, slices, tea, coffee, water and juice at the National Trust’s Brough House (73 Church Street, Maitland).
Please note: Uneven street walking is involved, and there are some hills along the way to be mindful of.
