The Olive Tree Market and Maitland Regional Art Gallery established a successful partnership in 2015 with the aim of bringing further creative art and design based events to Maitland.

As the leading dedicated contemporary art and design market in Newcastle, and The Hunter, The Olive Tree Market was perfectly placed to bring a program of carefully curated markets to the award winning regional gallery. Each event features a unique collective of Olive Tree Market makers, creators, and food stalls in the stunning grounds of Maitland Regional Art Gallery.

Meet with family and friends, explore the market, meet the makers, take home unique handmade goods, feast on street food, take in the sounds of live music performances by independent musicians, and then discover the amazing gallery.

​We always encourage locals to keep Maitland green and walk, ride or take public transport into the event.

Coming by Train? Maitland is an easy 30 minute train ride from Newcastle, and closer still from surrounding areas of Maitland. Maitland Station is an east 3 minute walk from Maitland Regional Art Gallery. All time table information can be found at Newcastle Transport.
