Roosting on a ridge overlooking the Spencer Gulf and Yorke Valley, Maitland is at the geographic centre of the Yorke Peninsula, 170km west of Adelaide It was proclaimed a town in 1872 and named for the Scottish wife of the first Lord of Kilkerran, Lady Jean Maitland. The locality was known to the local Aborigines as madiwaltu, which translates to ‘white flint,’ an obvious reference to the limestone ridges. Enriched by the natural lime runoff from the ridges, the soils support a productive agricultural industry based mainly on barley. A self-guided nature and history trail takes visitors on a tour which embraces the significant land marks, including the standout St Johns Anglican Church. Built in 1876, the church is graced with stained glass windows which present biblical stories in Australian settings. The Maitland National Trust Museum, which is located in an old schoolhouse, is highly regarded, especially for the quality of its German and Aboriginal heritage material.
