An Oarsome time in Maitland

Spark Event Group in conjunction with Maitland City Council presented the Maitland River Regatta on Thursday 26 January 2023. Situated in the lower Hunter Valley of New South Wales, over 500 punters in 250 boats floated down the Hunter River for Maitland’s signature Australia Day Regatta.

With an inflatable raft as their vessel, punters set sail from RH Taylor Reserve in Lorn for a serene float down the Hunter River, before disembarking at Lorn Beach.

A popular fixture of Maitland City Council’s ‘Make It Maitland This Summer’ program of events, Maitland City Council Team Leader Events, Kara Stonestreet said ‘‘What better way to spend the day than hopping in an inflatable boat and embarking on a relaxing float down the river.”

Along with the Inflatable Regatta, there were a raft of activities and entertainment, with food trucks, kid’s activities, beach games, live music and much more. It was a great day for families with plenty of fun and games for all ages.
