Transport Options

The lack of public transport in the Maryland area isolates the suburb from the rest of Newcastle. Go to The Newcastle and Hunter Bus Timetable External link for bus times.

Commercial Centre

A small shopping village located at Maryland provides residents with a supermarket and other small mixed businesses. The close proximity to Wallsend provides most of the local services.


Maryland was originally an agricultural area and residential development began in the 1970’s making it a relatively new suburb. Today, it is a family oriented residential area with an outlook on the wetlands.
